We’re excited to be sending four OU students and Campus Minister Evan Young to the Interfaith Youth Core Leadership Institute in Chicago August 11 – 13, 2017! 

Interfaith Leadership Institutes (ILIs) equip undergraduate students and educators with the skills to engage diverse faiths and worldviews to build the interfaith movement on their college campuses.

At the ILI:
  • Undergraduate students train to be interfaith leaders who build relationships across identities, tell powerful stories to bridge divides, and learn about ways to mobilize their campuses.
  • Educators (campus professional staff, faculty, and graduate students) share best practices about how to best support student leaders, advance interfaith cooperation strategically across campus, and network with other educators.
  • All participants get a chance to build relationships, network, and share best practices with other people from across the country who are passionate about interfaith work.

 With such dynamic and timely sessions on topics including “Engaging Religious Difference” and “Navigating Challenges of Interfaith Work”,  they’re sure to return with exciting ideas to implement through Better Together at Ohio University this fall. 

Some of our funding for travel expenses fell through so we’re hoping to raise $2500 to cover the cost. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation of any amount at our You Caring fundraising campaign or through the donate button on the UCM webpage.
