Student Programs 2018-2019 Annual Report
January 24, 2020
One of the central goals of the Berkley Center is to engage students in order to prepare educated citizens able to address global challenges and contribute to research in the pursuit of peace. The center fosters student engagement by offering courses, employing student research assistants, providing fellowship opportunities, hosting student events, and offering a minor designed specifically to educate students about the complexities of religion and international issues. Many of these programs and courses are made possible by the Doyle Engaging Difference Program and seek to prepare students to become effective citizens and advocates in a pluralistic world. Students who engage with the center’s programming will be better equipped to interact and cooperate with people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs and will develop an advanced understanding of issues at the intersection of religion, culture, and world affairs. This report highlights the Berkley Center’s core student programs during the 2018-2019 academic year.
