School Presidents Discuss MAGIL Program

Andover Newton President the Rev. Martin B. Copenhaver and Hebrew College President Rabbi Daniel L. Lehmann discuss the two schools' new collaborative degree in Global Interreligious Leadership in the latest isue of the Jounal of Interreligious Studies (JIRS). From the article abstract:

The Global Interreligious Leadership degree is designed to help current and future religious and communal leaders — clergy, educators, chaplains, and activists — develop the knowledge and skills to serve effectively in an age of unprecedented interaction among people with different beliefs and practices. Students in the program can be enrolled primarily at either institution, but will interact extensively with students in the parallel program at the other school, creating together a vibrant and lasting interreligious cohort.

The peer-reviewed JIRS is one of two online publications of the schools' CIRCLE program of interreligious leadership education, along with the blogging community at State of Formation. Both publications allow the schools' model of collaboration to reach out well beyond the Boston-area rising religious leaders who participate as CIRCLE fellows to include the voices of writers from across the United States and abroad.
