About Higher Education

The Big Picture

Interfaith America has two decades of experience as a partner to hundreds of universities with a range of affiliations including public, nonsectarian, and religious. We aim to make the vibrancy of our religious diversity a vital part of the college experience.

The Opportunity

Throughout American history campuses have incubated social change and shaped leaders. Campuses are sites for research and scholarship, community engagement, encountering deep differences, and building habits of civic leadership. That’s why our longstanding programs are rooted in the power and promise of U.S. higher education. When students are shaped into leaders who leave college equipped with the skills and desire to engage in religious differences, our diverse democracy flourishes.

What We Do

Our programs and resources build the capacity of campus educators, administrators, and students. We offer grants and other funding, learning tools, and curricula, as well as consulting and training for campuses or networks. We organize spaces (in-person and virtual) for relationship building, strategic planning, and leadership development.
