The SBL International Cooperation Initiative's
(ICI) mission is to foster biblical scholarship and to
facilitate mutual cooperation among colleagues. In that spirit, SBL is establishing databases that will allow scholars who would like the experience of volunteer teaching in other countries and institutions that can accomodate them to connect.
