A Faithful Witness in a Changing World

We seek to embody faithful Christian witness in a changing world, to nurture academic work that is rigorous, yet compelling and accessible, and to foster interdisciplinary collaboration to address complex issues. Through our Christian faith, we work to build bridges across various divides in the church, the academy, and society.

This is Duke Divinity.
