Forum on Religion and Scholarship 

Jennifer Wiseman with students in casual discussion

The Forum on Religion and Scholarship seeks to facilitate a discussion within the university community across a broad range of religious and philosophical differences. Working in cooperation with other academic centers and departments at the University of Florida, the Forum seeks to promote dialogue around a spectrum of issues that arise at the intersection of scholarship and religion in the university setting and that are of interest from a variety of religious and non-religious perspectives. The Forum on Religion and Scholarship exists for the mutual benefit of all who grapple with the issues raised by the intersection of religion and scholarship in the university.
