The Boisi Center is committed to fostering rigorous, civil, and constructive conversations about religion in public life, in pursuit of the common good of a religiously diverse society. We bring exceptional scholarship into dialogue with engaged citizenship and the creative arts, in order to produce meaningful exchanges that inform, challenge, and inspire. In doing this we support Boston College's Jesuit and Catholic commitment to education that shapes minds and souls alike for service to others. 

We feel that in the current social and political climate this work is more important than ever, and we invite you to join us.



The Center pursues its mission through five primary avenues:

Public Events

Courses and Seminars

Visiting Scholars


Media Outreach
