The results of the 2016 U.S. election and subsequent policies at the federal level have led some to refer to the country as "The Divided States of America." However, segments of society are drawing upon their faith and spirituality to develop strategies to mend social relationships and fragmented communities. The Contemporary Perspectives on Spirituality in Education book series will feature volumes geared towards understanding and exploring the role of spirituality in addressing challenge, conflict, and marginalization, particularly within education in America and internationally. Scholarly work informed by research and/or practice is welcome.

Topics of interest include:
> Community engagement
> Social activism in K-20 settings
> Volunteerism in K-20 settings
> Student and/or faculty work in healing communities
> Other topics related to the aforementioned areas
