About the Boisi Center
boisi center for religion and american public life
The Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life was created at Boston College in 1999 with an endowment from Geoffrey T. Boisi ‘69 and his wife Rene (Isacco) Boisi ‘69. From the outset its mission has been to create opportunities where a community of scholars, policy makers, media, and religious leaders can connect in conversation and scholarly reflection around issues at the intersection of religion and American public life. Our hope is that such conversations can clarify the moral consequences of public policies in ways that help to maintain the common good while respecting America’s increasing religious diversity.
