The Pulitzer Center kicks off its Campus Consortium partnership with the University of Southern California on Monday, February 24, with a two-day series focused on Pentecostalism, the world's most rapidly growing religion. Pulitzer Center grantees Bregtje van der Haak and Richard Vijgen will be on hand for the discussions, along with Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer and Pulitzer Center web developer Dan McCarey.

The program is presented by the Pulitzer Center, USC Knight Program in Media and Religion and USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. The two-day event also is made possible through a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to support "Religion and Power," a sustained engagement campaign by the Pulitzer Center on global religious issues through reporting and university collaborations.

All events are on the USC campus in Los Angeles.
