The American Association Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and Interfaith America (IA) are grateful for the generous support of The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations and Lilly Endowment Inc. to make interfaith cooperation an institutional priority throughout the United States. If accepted, all costs will be covered for the 2022 Institute. In addition, campuses will be eligible for a $3,000 grant to implement their action plan back on campus. In 2023 attending the Institute will be a shared cost between IA and the institution.
Over the course of four days, teams will attend sessions, consult with faculty advisors, and meet to develop context-specific action plans for broadening, deepening, and strengthening interfaith teaching and learning on their campus. The Institute will provide practical guidance, mentoring, and resources related to the following themes: Religious Diversity and Interfaith Studies in the Curriculum; Religious Identity and Campus Diversity Priorities; Interfaith Competence and Literacy Among Faculty and Staff; Cross-Curricular and Campus-wide Strategic Planning for Interfaith Cooperation
