The award will support efforts to help students encounter introductory interfaith ideas and tools as they engage within the university’s commitment to inclusive excellence.
University Chaplain Jan Fuller has received a Teaching and Learning for Campus-wide Interfaith Excellence Implementation Grant of $2,000 as a result her team’s participation in the Interfaith Youth Core and Association of American Colleges & University’s Institute for Inclusive Excellence 2020.
During a two-year period, Fuller and her team that includes Naeemah Clark, Randy Williams, Deandra Little and Rochelle Ford along with many faculty partners have a goal that all students encounter introductory interfaith ideas and tools as they engage within the university’s commitment to inclusive excellence. This training will likely take place in the first year, but may also ultimately be practiced in several courses throughout the Core Curriculum so that students can engage in these interfaith ideas with increasing deft and depth.
This grant is supported by Interfaith Youth Core and the Association of American Colleges and Universities through the generosity of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations. The funds will be used for materials, incentives and training.
