Engagement and Ethics


Many of the world’s most pressing issues and problems—from fostering sustainable and equitable development, to peacemaking and the protection of human rights, to assessing the full ramifications of scientific and technological developments on all forms of life—require new moral philosophies and ethical responses that can reach across cultural and religious differences, while drawing upon the fundamental values, beliefs, and traditions that continue to guide human beings across the globe.

The Religious Studies Department faculty work to foster the critical re-examination of diverse religious philosophies and traditions, while encouraging interreligious dialogue and engagement, as key foundations for addressing contemporary ethical challenges.
