The Faculty Roundtable was founded to foster discussion that explores the intersection of contemporary scholarship, including research and teaching, with the ‘Big Questions’ in all fields of academic inquiry, including, but particularly, ethics, philosophy, the sciences, the arts, and worldview.

The Yale Faculty Roundtable is based upon that of the successful Cambridge (Harvard—MIT) Roundtable model.  Both of which are underwritten by a generous grant from the Templeton Foundation. The Roundtable is sponsored by the Rivendell Institute at Yale and explicitly welcomes the participation of scholars from across the worldview spectrum from theist to non-theist to atheist.

For more information on the Yale Faculty Roundtable, and past speakers, please go to Faculty Roundtable.

In addition to the Roundtable, from time-to-time, we have Faculty Forums at Mory’s or the Graduate Club.  Here a faculty member gives a short fifteen minute presentation over lunch to be discussed by other academics.  For more information on past participants, please go to Faculty Forum.
