A Community of Committed Scholars Promoting Interfaith Cooperation

IFYC has the privilege of working with college and university faculty across a range of disciplines and institutions. These educators collectively draw on a deep body of knowledge and experience and converge frequently online and in-person to collaborate on their shared ideas and challenges.  

If you are exploring issues of interfaith cooperation and understanding in your teaching, scholarship, or research, we welcome you to join this growing network and add your voice to this emerging field.


Faculty Development Seminar: Teaching Interfaith Understanding

June 16-20, 2019, Chicago, IL

In partnership with the Council of Independent Colleges and generously funded by the Henry Luce Foundation

Faculty members from CIC-affiliated schools are invited to participate in a multidisciplinary seminar on Teaching Interfaith Understanding. This seminar, led by Laurie Patton, President of Middlebury, and Eboo Patel, Founder and President of IFYC, will examine the substantial theoretical questions inherent in teaching interfaith understanding and explore the practical work of translating these ideas into courses. The seminar will blend text-based discussions, syllabi and curriculum development, case study workshops, and site visits in the Chicagoland area. Applications for the 2019 seminar are due by Friday, January 18, 2019. Visit https://www.cic.edu/programs/interfaith for more information or to submit an application.
