Interfaith Month -- April 2022

April is INTERFAITH MONTH

Whether you are exploring your own faith, or visiting a faith experience for the first time, or even revisiting a challenging religious space from your past, April is an opportunity to expand your understanding of the religious landscape in our pluralistic society. These groups are student led, supported and advised by the chaplains and intentional searches for meaning and community building, while balancing ancient and modern faith traditions in our efforts to uphold human dignity and to grow in our understanding of each other.
