Center for Religion and Environment formed

The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, has announced the creation of the Center for Religion and Environment, which connects its College of Arts and Sciences, School of Theology, and All Saints Chapel in a partnership to strengthen its mission in education, church and society.

The center and the public programs it will offer reflect Sewanee’s commitment to sustainability and its mission as an institution of the Episcopal Church.

Dr. Robin Gottfried, the center’s founding director and professor of economics, notes that there is a need to change minds and hearts, to bring together the resources of the university to address the challenge he calls “environmental formation” — integrating “faith, practice, and the understanding of environmental issues for our students.”
