The Center Symposia

The Center for Religious Wisdom & World Affairs pursues a guiding theme in two-year cycles.  Scholars and practitioners participate in exploration of the theme and gain in wisdom that impacts scholarship and curricular application with university colleagues, and alongside the ecumenical partners, religious traditions and spiritual pathways we serve.  Every two years, two symposia take place.  The Team creates substantial online curricular resources for use in university classrooms and local community contexts.  At the close of the theme, we publish a text for use everywhere.
