The mission of the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict (CSRC) is to stimulate research and education on the nature, causes and consequences of religious conflicts around the world, with the goal of contributing imaginative strategies to their containment or resolution.
The Center collaborates with a number of departments on campus that offer internship programs for credit, including Barrett, the Honors College, the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) program, and Women and Gender Studies.
