NJ Interfaith Campus-Community Initiatives

TIME: 9:30 AM – 12 NOON

The Drew University Center on Religion, Culture and Conflict is pleased to host the fall 2021 NJ Interfaith Campus-Community Initiatives (virtual), engaging students from institutions of higher education across New Jersey.

In our inaugural event in April 2021, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as staff, faculty, and clergy from a dozen NJ college campuses participated.

Our goal with our upcoming October gathering is to bring students together online to discuss priorities for change they would like to see on their New Jersey campuses and in their communities. Students will learn from experienced educators, leaders, and organizers about ways to put these priorities into action while interacting with peers from institutions around our state.

Co-sponsored by the Drew Religious Life Council and Office of the University Chaplain.
