Abstract or Description:

Religious Literacy Leadership in Higher Education is an inter–university, multi–disciplinary partnership providing a two–tiered leadership development programme for Higher Education (HE) leaders and managers. Rooted in evidence and new research, and working with ten vice–chancellor ‘champions’, the project aims to equip Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to engage with religion as a resource for supporting student experience, limiting equalities challenges and litigation, supporting international students and staff, addressing good campus relations and considering how faith communities can contribute on issues such as unemployment, poverty, social justice and the environment in a context of spending cuts. In doing so the programme seeks to enable HEIs to lead a much higher quality of public conversation about religious faith in a context which is confused, ambivalent and anxious about religion.
