• teach students about the histories and varieties of religion, including prominent ideas, and methods and theories informing the academic discipline of religious studies

• advance the profession of religious studies through a commitment to scholarly research, publication, and debate
• promote informed public dialogue about religions and their interaction and influence with and on society and culture
