The Hardigg Family Fund supports the annual visit of a scholar designated as the Hardigg Family Fellow to Religion 85, which is the Culminating Experience of the Religion major, restricted to and required of all senior Religion majors. REL 85 (Senior Colloquium) is a special winter term course convened by two faculty members who will guide the selection of topics and grade the essays. Other faculty members in the department may visit the course during the first five weeks of the term; in addition, the course will feature as a guest speaker, the Hardigg Fellow, an author whose book is being read as part of the course. The Hardigg Family Fellow meets with students in class to discuss his or her work and also engages with students more informally in conversations outside of class. The Fellow also presents a public lecture in conjunction with their visit to campus.
