Building bridges and interfaith cooperation

Upcoming opportunities for students to participate with Dr. Eboo Patel of Interfaith America ( to learn more about building bridges and interfaith cooperation. I think the flyers would be the best to distribute, but I have also included the link to registration for the 2 events below.

Student Interfaith Leadership Training (dinner provided):  3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. 

Are you a student looking to make an impact and stand out to future employers? In a world of growing religious diversity and social polarization, workplaces are looking for people with the skills to turn potential conflict into collaboration. But bridges of cooperation don’t just fall from the sky or rise from the ground — people build them. And so can you!  

Join us Thursday, February 1st for a 4-hour interactive workshop + dinner where you’ll: 

  • Grow your toolbox of marketable professional skills and leadership talents 
  • Learn the knowledge and interfaith leadership skills to bridge diverse religious, spiritual, and secular identities, from Atheism to Zoroastrianism, through mutual respect, inspiring relationships, and cooperation at the U and in their civic and professional lives
