Each year, leaders and thinkers from around the globe come together at Westminster College for two days of scholarship and discussion. This annual symposium is an occasion for global leaders to inspire and educate the next generation.
The theme of the symposium changes annually in order to accommodate the ever changing global scene. Issues tackled by past symposia include humanitarian missions, conflict, technology, and citizenship. This year’s Symposium Scholars will be exposed to the frontlines of leadership in fields related to religious experience in global society.
Religion is one of the most diverse and complex phenomena in the global experience. Its dynamics, and the challenges to it, are multi-layered and numerous. The 2012 Westminster Symposium will investigate how religion manifests itself within the spheres of ethics, culture, and politics and within the relationship between science, religion, and intellectual progress. The Symposium will engage leaders, scholars, adherents of religious traditions, and all individuals interested in contemplating these varied dimensions in dynamic exposition of the way in which religion impacts our world today.
