About Usconsortium logo


The Consortium for the Study of Religion, Ethics, and Society is an interdisciplinary association of scholars, academic programs, and research centers across the eight campuses of Indiana University. We are dedicated to connecting faculty, incubating research and creative activity, and promoting the awareness of IU scholarship in areas relating to religion, ethics, and values.
