As interfaith scholars, students will:
- Enhance their knowledge of a variety of faith and/or philosophical traditions.
- Engage in a specialized experience of interfaith dialogue, engagement, and service.
- Be mentored by a UIndy faculty member.
- Work collaboratively with a group of religiously diverse peers to plan and execute events that engage the wider campus community in interfaith engagement and cooperation.
The current class of interfaith scholars has attended national conferences of the Interfaith Youth Core in Chicago and the Desmond Tutu Center for Peace in Indianapolis. They have produced events on campus such as the 9/11 Vigil and the Interfaith Winter Festival, engaging many UIndy students, faculty, and staff in interfaith cooperation and service.
Please note: The program seeks to include students from a variety of faith or non-faith backgrounds. Membership in or identification with a religious faith is not required.
Applications are due by Feb 26th at 11:59pm.
