Undergraduate Mentoring Symposium

Mentoring Undergraduate Students for Formation in Religious and Interreligious Leadership

Together with the Office of Religious Life at Boston University, the Miller Center hosted a symposium on mentoring undergraduate students for formation in religious and interreligious leadership on March 7-8, 2018. The symposium is supported by a grant from the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE) to the Office of Religious Life at Boston University to cultivate resources for undergraduate mentoring for students emerging into religious leadership

The symposium seeks to gather religious professionals at schools in greater New England with established mentoring programs to share their practices. Our desire is to gather representatives from schools to make initial presentations about their programs which can be adapted into chapters for a resource book chronicling the varieties of successful mentoring programs for undergraduate students emerging into religious leadership throughout greater New England.

The symposium is coordinated by Br. Larry Whitney ( and Rev. Soren M. Hessler (

Further information about the symposium and related book project will be posted here in late spring 2018.
