The director of the CRGC recently gave a talk to the Rotary Club of Madison titled “Teaching Religion at a Public University“.
Over the last decades, colleges and universities have become increasingly cognizant of the relevance of religion for a democratic polis. As a result, they have developed programs to improve religious literacy and to foster engagement between students of different faith traditions. The Center for Religion and Global Citizenry, an extra-curricular learning community at UW-Madison, teaches students’ knowledge of other religious traditions while cultivating active engagement with a plurality of worldviews, practices and traditions. Join us next week, February 27,when guest speaker, Dr.Ulrich Rosenhagen will sketch the story of the Center and its civic mission against the backdrop of these transitions within higher education.
