Institute for Faith & Learning


The institute is where theological thinking meets the world we live.

Aimed to inspire and enlighten people of all faith traditions, we feature speakers and host events each term with the goal of learning how to use scholarship and careful deliberation to face a range of complex and important matters facing the world today.

Institute guest speakers have included distinguished professors from U.S. universities, as well as published authors who’ve been featured in the news media.

We feature multiple speakers each term that examine how theology and politics intersect, how to look at historical events compared to contemporary culture, social ethics, diversity in the United States and beyond. All events are free and open to the public.
