Faculty & Staff

Earlham School of Religion faculty and staff serve multiple roles. They are teachers who create collaborative learning environments where students are engaged and challenged to think deeply and critically about matters of faith, theology and religious practice. They are scholars and researchers who make noteworthy contributions to our understanding of biblical history, theology, peace and justice, Quaker history and practice, ministry, Christian leadership and writing. They provide hospitality and support to our students, alumni, and community members.

Their educational backgrounds and experiences are diverse, but they share a singular focus on equipping new generations of students for lives of active ministry.
