Now Accepting Proposals
Thanks to a grant from Interfaith Youth Core and the Teagle Foundation, USU Anthropology and Social Work programs are currently developing an interdisciplinary Interfaith Studies Certificate Program that can be added to any undergraduate major. This program will blend classroom-based with practical learning opportunities so that students with an Interfaith Studies Certificate are ready to be change-makers and religious bridge-builders in whatever profession they prepare for. As a first step, we invite faculty to compete for 8 mini-grants to offset costs for designing new courses or modify existing ones to meet proposed Interfaith Certificate Program guidelines. Application deadline is October 24th, 2016. Check-out the RFP here.
Students to Host Interfaith Human Library Oct. 12th
As part of USU's Diversity Week, and in the tradition of the USU Library's "Human Library" program, the Interfaith Student Association will hold its own Interfaith Human Library in the TSC Lounge (2nd floor) on Wednesday, Oct. 12th from 11:00-1:00 o'clock. Come "check out" a student book and hear about what they believe as well as how these beliefs have shaped their lives as well as their experiences as Aggies during their time here at USU. Students from multiple faith traditions (religious, spiritual, non-religious, etc.) will be available for check-out. This is a great chance to learn about those who identify as Buddhist, Bah'ai, Muslim, Non-denominational Christian, LDS, Agnostic, Shamanic, Atheist and more!
