Founded in 1979, the Center for Studies in the Wesleyan Tradition has come to stand at the heart of the mission of Duke Divinity School.
Four intertwined purposes constitute the work of the Center:
- Staffing, supervising and enriching our curricular and extracurricular offerings in Methodist and Wesleyan Studies.
- Developing and supporting significant educational outreach programs designed for our United Methodist constituencies and beyond.
- Developing and providing access to outstanding research resources for students and scholars of the broad Wesleyan tradition around the globe.
- Supporting the production of critical editions of the texts of John and Charles Wesley in print and online formats.
