The Ronning Centre has worked with webmaster Dylan Anderson to create a new look for our site. Distinctive elements include a higher profile for our International Fellows, notes on recent activities of our Fellows (including their work with the Ronning Centre and in other venues), as well as In the News with links to current media stories relating to religion and public life. You will also find our usual event information and announcements.
