Leading University Engagement with Faith Communities: Exploring the Tensions and Possibilities for Successful Collaboration

Community-engaged scholarship and building mutually-beneficial relationships between universities and their broader communities is a growing national priority in higher education. And while faith communities often provide the anchor for many community-based initiatives, there is an uneasy relationship between these communities and secular colleges and universities. This 60-minute webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities for working across diverse faith communities in ways that align with institutional missions and promote the common good.

Wednesday, November 2 via Zoom - 12:30 to 1:30 pm (CST)

Panelists:
Makeda Zulu, Executive Director, University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center;
Charles Mathewes, Carolyn M. Barbour Professor of Religious Studies, University of Virginia; and
Saif Ishoof, Founder/Partner, Lab 22c., Miami, Florida.
