The Program seeks to assist the general public, especially the religious
communities, to understand the scientific robustness of the contemporary
theory of biological evolution, as well as to address the historical and
philosophical dimensions of the cultural debate that surrounds evolutionary
biology. Through conferences, lectures, research seminars, and electronic
and print publications, the Program assists religious communities to explore
the religious implications of evolution and seeks to engage the religious
communities in support of research on and education about evolution.
