Advancing Interdisciplinary Research and Cultivating Scholar-Practitioners

The Mission

The Center for the Study of Religion, Culture and Foreign Affairs promotes the cultivation of scholar-practitioners by advancing interdisciplinary research that explores the intersection between religion and culture in foreign policy. By advancing faculty and student relations, the Center strives to:

  • Support faculty and student development by cultivating practitioner-led research and disseminating findings to key stakeholders;
  • Encourage innovative practices in diplomacy and public discourse between faith-based practitioners and state actors; and
  • Foster public dialogue between scholars, students, and practitioners on the impact of religion, and cultural-based issues in local and global contexts.
