In a society of ever-growing diversity, the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life (IDCL) is a nonpartisan educational organization that examines religion and culture in the public sphere and considers the challenges and possibilities of diversity in Texas, the larger region, and the U.S. as a whole. IDCL’s programs promote intellectual exchange, make current scholarship publicly intelligible, cultivate conversations about belonging, inclusion, and recognition, and facilitate collaboration across communities.
