Samford's Dean Timothy George Named to Pew Forum
Dr. Timothy F. George, dean of Samford University's Beeson Divinity School, has been selected to serve on the advisory board of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
The Forum, a new project supported by the Pew Charitable Trusts, seeks to promote a deeper understanding of how religion shapes American ideas and institutions. Its purpose is to bridge the worlds of scholarship, public policy and journalism to function as both a clearinghouse and a town hall.
Upcoming Forum events include an examination of President George W. Bush's proposal regarding charity tax credits and a winter conference on religious perspectives of the death penalty.
Dr. George has been dean of Beeson Divinity School since it was established in 1988.
