Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict

Drew University’s Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict (CRCC) focuses critical attention on the complex ways in which people from different cultural, ethnic and religion traditions interact, and how both difference and similarity can serve as a resource for building peace. Our mission is to educate a next generation of leaders in interfaith and intercultural understanding and peace.
