Biography
Professor Ebaugh received her Ph.D. in Sociology from Columbia University in 1975 with specialties in Organizational Sociology and the Sociology of Religion. In addition to five books, she has published numerous articles in scholarly journals, including The American Sociological Review, Social Forces, the Journal of Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Sociological Analysis and The Journal For The Scientific Study of Religion.
 
Dr. Ebaugh served as president of the National Association for the Sociology of Religion, helped organize and served as the first chair of the American Sociological Association’s Section on the Sociology of Religion and is past president of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion. Ebaugh received two consecutive research grants from the Pew Charitable Trusts to study religion and the new immigrants in the United States. The results from the first grant that focused on the role of religious congregations in the incorporation of new immigrants is described in Religion and the New Immigrants: Adaptations and Continuities in New Immigrant Congrations (AltaMira Press, 2000). The second book from the project, Religion Across Borders: Transnational Religious Networks (AltaMira Press,s 2002) is an analysis of the impact of religious ties among immigrants in the United States and family/friends in their home countries.
 
With a major grant from the Lilly Endowment, Dr. Ebaugh studied inter-faith coalitions and their provision of social services. In addition to a national survey of these coalitions, she and her research team conducted fieldwork in 10-12 coalitions across the country, with focus upon the inter-relationships between coalitions and the religious congregations with which they partner in their joint effort to provide social services to the needy. Most recently (2009) Dr. Ebaugh published a book on the Gulen Movement, a transnational moderate Islamic movement devoted to education and interfaith dialog. Her next project will trace the growth of the movement worldwide. She routinely teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the Sociology of Religion and the study of World Religions.

Organizer

The Atlantic Institute

Atlantic Institute is an independent, non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta  whose goal is to facilitate dialogue and bridge cultures around the globe. For a better world of peace and understanding, we would like to develop public awareness for diverse cultures, beliefs, traditions, and opinions. We strongly believe in the spirit of the United States of America that celebrates diversity as richness. With our  branches in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina, we have been able to dedicate our efforts and resources for building cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue.

OUR VISION

Atlantic Institute is a non-profit civic organization that provides various academic and educational platforms to promote diversity in our society. We are significantly influenced by the teachings and writings of Mr. Fethullah Gulen who emphasizes the importance of education, dialogue and understanding in cross-cultural engagement. These universal values are esteemed by many previous scholars and leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rumi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This gives us hope and motivation that we can find common denominators as the global citizens of the world.

OUR MISSION

Through a wide range of activities that bring local community members from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, we seek to proactively contribute to educational, cultural, social, and humanitarian issues in our community. We believe in the power of personal interaction and communicative dialogue as they are the best channels to build mutual understanding, trust, and harmony for a peaceful world.
