Eruditio et Religio Living Learning Community duke university | durham, nc

"How are we, in the United States, to embrace difference and maintain a common life?"

- Michael Walzer, Harvard Law Political Theorist

We think one answer is Duke's newest living learning community: Eruditio et Religio (E&R).

E&R helps students build relationships with people of other traditions and prepares them for working together for the common good, through intentional living, service, and social action.

What does this look like on the ground?

Intellectual Opportunities

A house course exploring (inter)religious diversity

Lectures and programs connecting academic interests and religious experience

Regular dialogues

Community Service

Opportunities to connect learning with the local community, through service projects, site visits, and social action.

Living in community

Housed within Blue Ridge House (Keohane Quad 4B, West Campus), E&R is about building friendships through shared meals, house events, retreats, trips and religious exploration.
