"The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life seeks to promote a deeper understanding of how religion shapes the ideas and institutions of American society. At a time of heightened interest in religion’s public roles and responsibilities, the Forum bridges the worlds of scholarship, public policy and journalism by creating a platform for research and discussion of issues at the intersection of religion and public affairs. People of faith and the institutions they build play a critical role in the public life of our nation, and the public square is compromised unless religion is welcomed there. The Forum explores these contributions to civic life while honoring America’s traditions of religious liberty and pluralism."

etext Essay Forum on the Religious Engagements of American Undergraduates
"Recent studies of college students' attitudes toward religion suggest that the academy is no longer the bastion of secularism it was once assumed to be. And these studies further reveal that the spiritual landscape on today's college campuses is virtually unrecognizable from what we've seen in the past. Evangelicalism--often in the form of extra-denominational or parachurch campus groups--has eclipsed mainstream Protestantism. Catholicism and Judaism, too, are thriving, as are other faiths. To help make sense of these changes, the Social Science Research Council commissioned the following series of essays from leading authorities in the field of religion and higher education."

web Boisi Center for Religion & American Public Life
"The goal of the Boisi Center is to create opportunities where a community of scholars, policy makers, media and religious leaders in the Boston area and nationally can connect in conversations and scholarly reflection around issues at the intersection of religion and American public life. The hope is that such conversations can help to clarify the moral and normative consequences of public policies in ways that can help us to maintain the common good, while respecting our growing religious diversity."
