Eruditio et Religio members

Eruditio et Religio Living-Learning Community

Duke Chapel, Housing and Residential Life, and the Department of Religious Studies have partnered to form Eruditio et Religio, an undergraduate living-learning community (LLC) committed to growing together in "knowledge and faith." Applications for the 2022–23 academic year are due February 12, 2022.

Located in the Keohane 4B residence hall with easy access to The Mosaic, Duke's only residential based prayer and meditation space, Eruditio et Religio invites students into questions around faith and doubt, religion and culture, community and connection. Students who join this LLC will learn about diverse religious traditions through a multitude of frameworks, reading both scholarly texts and children's stories, talking with professors and spiritual leaders, visiting Duke religious groups and Durham spiritual communities. This LLC is for students who are seeking to expand their intercultural awareness as a community and deepen their intrapersonal spiritual reflection as individuals, all while preparing to work together for the common good. Students are expected to attend a House Course in the fall. A service-learning component will be developed by the student for the spring. Syllabus available upon request.

Expectations for members of Eruditio et Religio:

  • Attend fall House Course
  • Join in spring trip
  • Participate in regular dialogue dinners
  • Coordinate and lead interfaith service projects
  • Strengthen interreligious engagement on campus
