This session will focus on the importance of interdepartmental and campuswide integration of interfaith engagement, multifaith learning, and DEI efforts in higher education, with a panel of faculty and administrators from different institutions committed to advancing this integration. In Part 1, panelists will discuss strategies, challenges, and opportunities from their respective contexts. In Part 2, Matt Hoffman will lead panelists in an asset-mapping exercise brainstorming possible partners, resources, and ideas on their respective campuses. Attendees will likely want pen and paper for Part 2. This session is primarily for educators but students are welcome. Educator Track.
