The Center for Religion, Culture, and Community (CRCC), which is housed in the Department of Religious Studies, is focused on creating sustainable bridges between individuals and communities associated with different religious cultures.
The CRCC hosts multiple events and forums that reflect our religiously pluralistic world. These events are designed both to promote critical thinking about religion as a social, political, cultural, artistic, economic and spiritual phenomenon as well as to help address some of the most pressing social issues of our day. Events and forums commonly include the following:
In addition to efforts like these, the CRCC also serves as a community-engaged connection point for students, faculty, and community leaders who are interested in addressing some of the most pressing social issues of our day. Toward this end, the CRCC collaborates with a number of socially-engaged units at DePaul, including the Irwin D. Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning and the Council for Community Engagement. Through collaborations like these, the CRCC strives to support meaningful initiatives, both inside and outside of the university, that have bearings on the intersection between religion and social justice.
