History of the Wabash Center


The Wabash Center’s constituency are faculty in the fields of theology and religion. We support faculty reflecting upon teaching and the teaching life when employed in theological education, colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. We are exclusively funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. Our program activities include resource development, a re-granting program, and a wide array of cohort groups to improve teaching and the teaching life. Our central aim is to help teachers to teach better.

With the assistance of the Wabash Center staff, our many programs are designed and led by peer scholars from across the theological and religion landscape who have participated in previous Wabash Center programming.  Our strategy is to cultivate peer faculty as leaders of future cohort groups, writers and designers of our teaching resources, project managers for a school’s institutional focus on teaching.
