Center For Faith Studies

The Center for Faith Studies’ mission is to foster a culture of faithful inquisitiveness into the nature of God, the created world, and our individual and collective roles in it. The Center draws upon a variety of disciplines, including comparative religion, theology, the humanities, and the sciences, in its offerings of classes, small group discussions, and large-group presentations.
