Howard University School of Divinity commits to continuing to fund two Masters level students in each cohort as Divinity Research Assistants to work collaboratively with faculty whose research focuses specifically on women and/or girls of color.
In April 2016, Howard University School of Divinity students participated as discussion moderators at an event at AERA focused on research addressing the lives of women and girls of color.
“When we honor the voices and experiences of women and girls of color from diverse religious experiences, we answer our inner yearnings to see the world from a much broader perspective. We demonstrate our respect and openness to living in harmony, and not fear, with our higher selves and others. The Collaborative’s research initiative provides researchers and scholars the opportunity to see a wider world and give voice to those diverse religious experiences often maligned or excluded by history.”
