11-03-2015

The Center for the Study of Religious Freedom (CSRF) at Virginia Wesleyan College has been selected to join a research exchange with the Kettering Foundation's Centers for Public Life. The Kettering Foundation is dedicated to cooperative research conducted from the perspective of citizens and focusing on what people can do collectively to address problems affecting their lives, their communities and their nation. The CSRF will be among 10 institutions participating in a one and a half year exchange concentrating on public deliberation as a means of addressing pressing local or national issues. The first of five meetings will take place in February 2016 at the Foundation's campus in Dayton, Ohio. Created in fall 1996, the CSRF is a resource for education, respectful dialogue, and mutual understanding relating to issues of religion and faith perspectives. More
