Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict

Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict focuses critical attention on the complex ways in which people from different cultural, ethnic and religion traditions interact, and how both difference and similarity can serve as a resource for building peace.

Religion and Global Health Forum

Launched in February 2020, the Religion and Global Health Forum seeks to examine religion as a health component while building an infrastructure where all people, regardless of background and bodies, have access to consistent quality health care and dignity. Aligned with partners such as the Harvard Global Health Catalyst, Drew University's Medical Humanities program, and many others, the Forum looks at how religion and faith are both healthcare assets as well as catalysts for high quality healthcare, both nationally and internationally.

Summer Music Institute

Worship in the Borderlands: Welcoming the Stranger in Liturgy and Song. In the face of rising nationalism, fear of the "other," and race hatred, how does worship speak to the spiritual values that shape meaning in this time? As leaders, demonstrating the central tenet of hospitality in the music we sing, the prayers we pray, and the sermons we preach, we reflect and remember the Judeo-Christian heritage that guides and transforms our understanding of "welcoming the stranger," reminding us that we are all strangers in a strange land.
