Secularity and the Liberal Arts

RSL supports campus wide initiatives to consider how secular campus life relates to students' "big questions" of meaning, purpose and identity.
  • A Teagle Foundation grant: RSL and Vassar are part of a multi-campus consortium of religious life professionals and faculty who were awarded a grant to study "Secularity and the Liberal Arts" See more information on the work of this group at http://projects.vassar.edu/secularity/
  • Grant initiatives include faculty conversations, qualitative research, campus programs, a white paper, and closing conference that was held November 13-14, 2008.
