What We Do

The CPRSE promotes philosophically primed and religiously attuned interdisciplinary research on leading questions of life and society. The CPRSE does this by bringing together scholars from diverse fields, supporting five types of programs:

 - individual faculty research and publication
 - multiyear, collaborative research projects
 - annual lecture series, book launches, and other events
 - symposia, workshops, consultations, and conferences
 - limited-term residencies
