Project Description/Abstract

Two major issues, religious pluralism and immigration, have historically and are presently challenging professionals in the New England social service sector to respond with cultural competency. The nuances of these two forces, religious pluralism and immigration, have changed over time and depend on a variety of social, economic and political factors from within and outside of the United States. Immigration and religious pluralism are interrelated and interacting phenomena. This research project seeks to explore, document, analyze and disseminate these interactions and interrelationships for the purpose of improving pedagogies and the delivery of social services. This is an important part of the college’s mission in research, teaching and service.
