Lunch on Interfaith Cooperation
DiversityEd’s Conversation Café Lunch
Building Interfaith Cooperation on Campus
Friday, April 8th at 12pm
Women’s Resources Center
703 S. Wright St., 2nd floor
Above Freestar Bank

In the last decade, we have seen an increasing focus on religious and
spiritual diversity within our campus community and larger global society.
One successful approach to exploring differences in beliefs, values, and
practices is through interfaith cooperation that focuses on awareness,
appreciation, and action among people of different backgrounds. This
presentation will engage participants in a dialogue about interfaith
cooperation on the University of Illinois campus. Facilitated by Leslie
Schwartz, Illinois Leadership Center, and Jill Schreiber, Children and
Family Research Center. Come for the lunch, stay for the conversation.

Interfaith Youth Core Presentations
OIIR’s Diversity & Social Justice Education (DiversityEd) and Interfaith in
Action are inviting staff from Interfaith Youth Core ( to
provide a series of events to build capacity for interfaith collaboration
and religious inclusion on campus. We hope you’ll join us!
