Tucker and Grim, founders and co-directors of the Forum on Religion and Ecology, have joint appointments in the Divinity School, the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and the Department of Religious Studies as research scholars and as senior lectures in religion and the environment.
Both were major players at the conference Renewing Hope:Pathways of Religious Environmentalism, presented by the Forum on Religion and Ecology and held at Yale Feb. 28-March 2, 2008.
