This book argues that American colleges and universities need to enlarge their understanding of pluralism and multiculturalism by sponsoring open, challenging, spiritually and educationally revitalizing conversations among students about genuine religious difference. Although religious difference is a pivotal component of cultural pluralism, too often today it gets ignored, marginalized, or sugar-coated in higher education. Together administrators, faculty, and students must take the initiative to transform the academy into an exciting space for robust and respectful religious dialogue throughout the campus. This book offers a number of concrete examples and strategies in each chapter for achieving this objective.

He has earned five degrees, including a doctorate in philosophy of education from Boston University.

Review:

«In ‘Religious Pluralism in the Academy’, Robert J. Nash opens the window on a topic in American higher education shuttered much too long – promoting real dialogue on religion and spirituality across the academy. Through six engaging narratives of differing images and beliefs, Nash tells the story of student spirituality with the perception of a philosopher, the passion of a polemist, and the craft of a very gifted teacher. A must read for educators – faculty and administrators alike – committed to responding to the deepest questions in students’ lives.» (C. Carney Strange, Professor, Bowling Green State University; Author, ‘Educating by Design: Creating Campus Learning Environments That Work’)
«Robert J. Nash brings uncommon learning and experience and the earnestness of a seasoned pilgrim to the topic of religious pluralism in higher education. He is deeply insightful regarding the multiple religious narratives currently on campuses, as well as the promise of ‘moral conversation’ for constructing a civil life together. This is crucial reading for student affairs staff, faculty, religious workers – all those who care about developing students’ worldviews and civil selves.» (Michael D. Waggoner, Professor, University of Northern Iowa; Editor, ‘Religion and Education’)
