All are invited to a public panel of national experts on Educating Religious Leaders for a Multi-religious World. Claremont Lincoln University Provost Philip Clayton moderates the panel, which includes:

  • Dr. Anantanand Rambachan, Department Chair and Professor or Religion, Philosophy and Asian Studies, Saint Olaf College


The leaders are in town for a Parliament conference that brings 17 religious educators from a variety of faith traditions to discuss how interreligious training can be enhanced for preparing leaders in their own religious tradition and stimulated in religious communities around the world.


The project builds on the success of a program at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia in 2009. Initial sessions of this phase of the study are funded with a grant from the Arthur Vinning Davis Foundations. The Claremont Lincoln University consortium is proud to host this conference and public panel.
