The interdisciplinary nature of the study of religion lends itself to collaborations with many departments and programs across campus.
We bring a variety of speakers and visiting professors to campus to address the intersection of religion and politics, architecture, environmentalism, and mass media, among other topics. We welcome students to join us on excursions beyond Colgate to deepen our understanding of the multi-faceted phenomenon that is religion.
Please note that between semesters there may be no event listings.
Featured Event: GospelFest February 16th, 2013
This is an annual event that brings together several different gospel choirs from neighboring universities such as Cornell, Syracuse, and Hamilton to Colgate to perform for one amazing concert in Memorial Chapel. This event includes a musical workshop led by a Kurt Carr, an American gospel music composer and performer, who has also agreed to host this event. The event culminates with a performance by the combined choirs in the Chapel.
