Contribute to the Religious Studies General Fund and support our efforts to advance undergraduate and graduate education in Religious Studies at University of Minnesota…
A hallmark of the Program in Religious Studies is our interdisciplinary philosophy—students have the option to choose their own research topics, courses, and advisers from departments across the entire University. This philosophy extends to outreach and community programming for our undergraduate and graduate students as well. Our lecture series, the Roetzel Family Lecture in Religious Studies, is student-centered, providing professional academic experiences for our junior scholars; and this year’s brand-new Minnesota Religion and Society workshop was designed to provide a supportive, intellectual home for our diaspora of interdisciplinary religious studies graduate minors.
We offer high-quality programming through careful planning and efficient organization, even and especially in times of diminishing resources. We pride ourselves on being responsible stewards of state and private funds, and we love what we do—we have a knack for administering the Program in Religious Studies in ways that provide community, academic, and professional opportunities while sharing a real passion for religous studies with our students. Your support makes our work possible. Please consider joining the growing list of donors who have contributed to making religious studies at the U of M a nationally recognized program!
