The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) have announced two multidisciplinary seminars on Teaching Interfaith Understanding for full-time faculty members. The seminars will broaden faculty members’ knowledge and perspective to help them strengthen the teaching of interfaith understanding, develop new courses and other resources, and encourage the development of a growing network of faculty members who are committed to teaching this subject. The seminars, offered by CIC and IFYC and generously supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, will cover most costs of participation for those faculty members who are selected.
Twenty-five participants will be selected for each seminar by competitive nomination. Full-time faculty members at U.S. colleges and universities are eligible to be considered with preference given to those at CIC member institutions. Nominations should come from the chief academic officer, and preference will be given to nominees whose plans to develop and offer new courses are definite and have institutional approval and support.
The Cambridge (MA) seminar will take place at Lesley University, June 15–19, 2014 and the Chicago (IL) seminar will take place at DePaul University, August 3–7, 2014. Download brochure. See complete description on their webpage.
