CONVERGENCE

Enhancing Institutional climates for Religious, Secular, and Spiritual identities through policy and practice

OUR VISION

We seek to create a sustainable culture that expects religious, secular, and spiritual identities and their intersections to be actively engaged and supported within all institutional frameworks for diversity and inclusion.

OUR STORY

WE TRAIN AND EQUIP

Convergence is a higher education focused organization that is preparing individuals and building coalitions of professionals through resources and training.
