Research Center For World Religions


The Research Center for World Religion (RCWR) is a community of researchers and programs covering a variety of substantive domains and exemplifying URD’s commitment to the highest standards of academic excellence and research innovation. The RCWR brings substantive expertise and collaborative infrastructure to theoretically driven and multimodal research. The RCWR collaborates with multi-disciplinary research from the University of — and other research institutions by collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data; providing methodological and statistical expertise; and facilitating pre-and post-award management. RCWR’s research staff works jointly with social scientists and other experts in an open, cooperative working environment.

As part of a learning culture, intergenerational project teams enrich learning, scholarship, and discovery. In particular, graduate research assistants at RCWR have a tremendous opportunity to apply what they have learned in practical settings. As the next generation of social scientists, they work with experts in various fields and disciplines to conduct world-class empirical research, and RCWR benefits from their fresh perspectives, energy, and insights.
