In the twenty-first century, research on religion in British higher education is flourishing. Religion has been neglected in studies of contemporary higher education, but over the past decade it has attracted new attention. This attention comes both from academics – scholars of higher education and of religion – and higher education leaders and policymakers. The religiosity (or non-belief) of students and staff is of new interest to university managements as they negotiate provision for all students, religious and none, and as they work to discern how they can be inclusive of religious perspectives.
