“At Iliff, we are taking stock of the stories of displacement within the world that it engages. Whether it is the immense grief from COVID deaths, the movement to exclude LGBTQIA+ persons from the church, political divisions within US culture, racial injustice, political challenges to higher education curriculum, it is always about human displacement. In this era of displacement, Iliff stands in its full stature when it is about the work of creating place.”
