Central Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science
The Central Pennsylvania Forum for Religion and Science, under the direction of Dr. Richard Schaeffer, Professor of Chemistry, sponsors a variety of events, all intended to help promote better understanding of religion and science–including medicine and social science–in this region. We continue the university’s established tradition of hosting speakers who represent diverse religious and disciplinary perspectives. Most events take place on our campus, but some are held in other locations.
All of our events are announced here. PLEASE BOOKMARK THIS PAGE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. Information about each event is also sent by email upon request. To add your name to our list, or to update your email address, contact Dr. Schaeffer at email@example.com.
All of our events are open to the public—indeed, it is the people of Central Pennsylvania whom we seek to serve. Most events are free; any exceptions will be clearly announced. Our budget comes mostly from contributions. If you wish to donate to the Forum, please contact Dr. Schaeffer.
