The findings from IDEALS, VIEWS, and related research initiatives continue to spark important conversations around interfaith engagement on campus. To help you dive more deeply into these discussions, we have created a running library of reports and scholarly articles that explore the findings from, and implications of these studies across higher education.

IFYC and our partners will continue to add to this page as the conversation continues, so be sure to check back here for updates and sign up for our email alerts to stay up to date on new articles and reports.
