Warren Wilson receives grant for new program focus

By: Ben Anderson

Warren Wilson College has received a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Bible grant in the amount of $21,170 to help develop a "Bible and Eco-Social Sustainability" program focus within the religious studies department.

The award builds upon two previous grants in social ethics from the church’s higher education division. Jeanne Matthews Sommer, chair of the Warren Wilson religious studies department, says the department now is interested in developing cross-disciplinary connections in writing, gender studies, environmental studies and religion.
