Abstract

© Oxford University Press, 2014. This chapter provides a three-part definition of religion, including historic religion, personal religion, and public religion, that sets the stage for a clearer and more productive conversation about the place of religion in American higher education in the future. A wide range of current topics under discussion in higher educational circles- religious literacy, the making of meaning, civic engagement-have undeniable links to religious concerns. In a postsecular age, higher education will seek to develop appropriate mechanisms and manners for conversation that includes voices reflective of religious particularity, while still maintaining commitment to rational academic discourse.
