CIRCLE - Center for Inter-Religious and Communal Leadership Education
Inter-religious leadership must be thoughtfully cultivated, fostered, and supported. Support CIRCLE in educating and preparing a new generation of inter-religious leaders.
CIRCLE has recently launched a new initiative to ensure the sustainability of its fellowship program. Meet our generous supporters and
contact us to endow a named student fellowship with your gift.
The mission of the Center for Inter-Religious and Communal Leadership Education (CIRCLE) is to help prepare religious and ethical leaders for service in a religiously diverse society through the cultivation of authentic relationships across lines of difference. Founded in 2008 with a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, CIRCLE is a joint initiative of Andover Newton Theological School (ANTS) and Hebrew College (HC).
CIRCLE-run platforms engage hundreds of seminary and graduate students, academics, and communal leaders locally and nationally through our in-person and online initiatives, including courses, peer study groups, publications, and special events. It is our conviction that through study, dialogue, research, and joint action, we can establish relationships of care, mutual respect, and civic collaboration to transform the world.
