Advocacy Efforts for Scholars
Since its founding in 1880, the Society of Biblical Literature has worked to foster biblical scholarship and advocate for the needs of those engaged in such scholarship. SBL advocates on behalf of students, researchers, teachers, and others interested in biblical scholarship on issues such as secondary and postsecondary education, the academic workforce, and scholarly publishing.
