Our Rivendell Institute mission to examine and advance the contribution of Christian scholarship to human flourishing and the common good within the academy and contemporary culture, is furthered through the following Research Initiatives:

In Phase I each Research Initiative will launch programs in the coming year that will garner the participation of Christian scholars at Yale as well as around the U.S. and the world.

It is our expectation to add a fourth initiative in bioethics within the next three to five years.
