The department gathers data on religious institutions in and around the College in order to (1) have a good, student-friendly index of fieldwork sites as we continue to focus on the local community as our learning environment; (2) make our data available to civic and community groups; and (3) help inform researchers of the immense religious diversity in the area. This information is maintained with student help; if you see an error or have a suggestion, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
