The Elliott Allen Institute for Theology & Ecology:

Mission Statement

In expressing our concern for the ecological crisis of the planet, the Institute seeks integrative methods for contributing to the healing of the Earth in all its life systems.

The Elliott Allen Institute for Theology and Ecology (EAITE) is a collaborative teaching and research institute that offers a Certificate of Specialization in Theology and Ecology in each of the graduate programs at the Faculty of Theology of the University of St. Michael’s College, part of the Toronto School of Theology at the University of Toronto.

Interdisciplinary by definition, the Institute facilitates serious contact between the theological and ecological disciplines and the scientific, cosmological, and cultural paradigm shifts that are sweeping our times.


to explore scripture, Christian and other religious traditions, and contemporary scholarship for insights that inform a theological response to the ecological crisis;

to educate educators and students, policy makers and activists, the public and members of faith communities about the challenges and solutions to the ecological crisis;

to bring voices from science and religion into a creative dialogue, and to contribute both to those discussions and to the research and publications that can follow;

to develop and offer new liturgical expressions that explore the sacred dimension of creation.
