The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs integrates scholarly examination of pressing social problems with solution-oriented responses initiated by communities of faith and their organizations.  The Center convenes faith-based organizations and other local stakeholders to problem solve on how to more effectively address pressing social issues, like homelessness and the affordable housing crisis.  It is committed to producing capacity-building resources and providing professional development support for community partners across the Puget Sound region.

The Center invites applications for its new Practitioner-in-Residence program.  Seasoned executives from local faith-based organizations working in the area of homelessness and related social issues are encouraged to apply.

The Center’s Practitioner-in-Residence will have the opportunity to:

  • develop his or her thinking and skills around community development and public theology in the company of scholars, faculty, students and other community partners;
  • provide guidance to the Center’s thematic working groups as they compile good practices of faith-based responses to homelessness; and
  • contribute to the delivery of the Center’s professional development courses.

The Practitioner-in-Residence will receive a stipend and have access to relevant university resources.

Deadline: July 16, 2018
