A panel discussion with national experts

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:
- Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, Ph.D, Director, Department of Multifaith Studies and Initiatives; Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
- Dr. Azizah al-Hibri, Professor of Law, T. C. Williams School of Law, University of Richmond, Founder and President, KARAMAH: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights
- Dr. Paul F. Knitter, Paul Tillich Professor of Theology, World Religions and Culture, Union Theological Seminary
- 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. Claremont Lincoln University is proud to host this conference and public panel.
