"Quakers and the Disciplines"

A series of books of peer-reviewed essays on the contributions of Quakers and Quaker thought to various scholarly disciplines. To date, volumes have focused on philosophy, literature, business and industry, and politics and economics.

Population(s) Served

The Friends Association for Higher Education (FAHE) was conceived in 1979 by a group of educators seeking to bring together faculty, staff and administrators at historically Quaker colleges and universities, as well as Friends teaching at other institutions. Since its founding, FAHE has met annually at Friends institutions of higher education around the US and beyond, engaging educators, scholars and administrators in ongoing dialogue around Quaker concerns in higher education.

From the very beginning, Friends have embraced a strong commitment to education, and Friends schools and colleges have attracted and welcomed both Quaker and non-Quaker educators alike who resonate with the historic Friends commitment to educating the whole person, guided by the Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and (especially in recent decades) sustainability.

Population(s) Served

This annual event, co-sponsored with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, provides and opportunity for high school students and their families, both Quaker and not, to meet representatives and receive information from Quaker colleges and universities, and attend a panel presentation that discusses the college selection and application process, with college admissions officers, high school college counselors, faculty, and recent alumni.
