Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life
Student Association for Religion and Politics
The Student Association for Religion and Politics (SARP) was an organization for undergraduate and graduate students throughout the Boston College community to engage vital questions at the intersection of religion and public life. Since fall of 2010, the Boisi Center has shifted its focus from student groups to the Symposia on Religion and Politics, a reading and discussion group for undergraduate and graduate students.
SARP sought to be a platform for dialogue by hosting regular group discussions and larger university-wide events, and by supporting the events of the Boisi Center itself. The goal of its forums was to explore the moral consequences of public policies in ways which help maintain the common good and respect religious diversity.
