The Woolf Institute's vision is a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance.
Our approach is to integrate academic research with practical education for diverse audiences, including police, doctors, teachers, clergy, diplomats and policy makers.
Teaching is delivered in collaboration with the University of Cambridge as undergraduate and Masters teaching and supervision of PhD students; as online courses open to students around the globe and at the American University's School of International Service in Washington; through tailored courses for particular professions; as media commentary and articles; and at public and private events, including conferences, panel discussions, exhibitions and concerts.
The Woolf Institute's vision is a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance. It combines teaching, scholarship and outreach, focusing on Jews, Christians and Muslims, to build tolerance and foster understanding between religion and society.
The Woolf Institute welcomes gifts to support scholarships and bursaries for its PhD, MPhil, sabbatical and online students. Gifts of all sizes make a very real difference and you may choose to give for current expenditure or towards endowment for student support.
Events are a key part of sharing the Woolf Institute's work, findings and ethos with society, moving us further towards a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance.
Research is at the heart of the Woolf Institute's work, it informs and develops the teaching, public education, online education and media activities by which the Institute aims to foster and increase understanding between religion and society around the world.
The Woolf Institute offers a range of teaching to people with a variety of interests and needs relating to interfaith dialogue, interactions and understanding.
The Woolf Institute hosts events throughout the year that are open to our supporters.
