Housed at The School of Theology at The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennesee, the Center for Religion and Environment at Sewanee is interdisciplinary and pluralist, interested in all religious traditions and a wide variety of academic disciplines. Three connected areas of focus shape CRE’s approach: spirituality of nature, ecotheology, and environmental ethics.
CRE’s threefold mission is to help students and the broader community integrate religious belief with care for the environment, to prepare students across the curriculum for environmentally conscientious work and ministry, and to serve as a focal point for University-wide initiatives related to religion and the environment.

The Center for Religion and Environment at Sewanee facilitates traditional curricular and co-curricular offerings in religion and environment for students at The College of Arts and Sciences and The School of Theology, as well as programs for the broader Sewanee community.
