We are an interdisciplinary network of educators, students, and scholars who examine issues involving religion and education in the United States, Canada, and around the globe. The REC strives to bridge gaps between academic fields and educational arenas to promote research and initiatives on religious literacy education, relationships between religion and public schools, and other topics at the intersections of religion and schooling.
The membership of the Religion & Education Collaborative includes researchers, educators, graduate students, and others whose work intersects with the topics of religion and schooling. The Membership Directory provides a listing of current members who have consented to being included in the public directory.
The current membership represents over 20 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, as well as Norway, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.
Over the past four years, the REC has grown to close to 100 members and continues to host regular online meetings. When possible, members also meet in-person at academic conferences and related events. In 2020, the REC received sponsorship from The Foundation for Religious Literacy, which has allowed us to expand our online presence and being to build additional supports for this thriving community. The REC is currently directed by Kate E. Soules, PhD.
