THE CENTER’S INTERFAITH FORUMS
Interfaith Forums bring together small groups of students from different religious backgrounds regularly throughout the school year to get to know each other and engage in challenging conversations about religious life. There is nothing like real relationships to build real understanding. To join a forum or for more information, contact Center intern Zachary Dehm (email@example.com).
