The Institute for the Study of Religion and Culture provides the University of Arizona with a research and outreach center that addresses the renewed role of religion in international politics and in societies across the globe and situates that role in historical perspective. It is essential for the land-grant mission of the University of Arizona to engage the fundamental question of religion's impact on all human societies and cultures. As a public university, the University of Arizona recognizes that a non-sectarian understanding of religion and its role in culture is central to its educational mission, and the Institute provides an opportunity to align this aspect of the UA mission with the pressing realities of our day.
