SAVE THE DATE: Forward Together: Where Science, Ethics, & Religion Intersect in a Changing World

The DoSER program turned 25 in the year 2020!

Anniversaries are the perfect time to reminisce about the past, see how far we’ve come, and look to how we can improve in the future. We’re celebrating our anniversary in June, and you’re invited!

Cupcakes with lit birthday candles in each

Join us June 15 to look at the past, present, and future of the science-religion dialogue!

The virtual, half-day event will include panel presentations and small group discussions on topics at the forefront of the science-religion dialogue, the broad impacts of science on human life and society, and the importance of faith communities for enabling the broadest benefits of scientific advances.

Join scientists, science communicators, faith leaders, and practitioners to learn about engagement on hot topics including evolution, climate change, genetics and neurology, artificial intelligence, combating racism, and increasing public trust in science.
