Religion Initiative

The Cross-Cultural Religious Literacy (CCRL) Initiative helps bridge the gap between interdisciplinary scholars and global practitioners—from diplomats and military to NGOs and business—by teaching skill sets at the intersection of religion & realpolitik. Bringing new thinking and a Pacific Northwest perspective of inquiry & innovation, this initiative will serve as a research and professional development resource for leaders from our region, the Pacific Rim, and our world. We are anxious to hear about your education and training needs as we build classes and curricula that account for the complex religious dynamics of global engagement.
