Interfaith Youth Core to bring interfaith studies to the classroom
A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education highlights the efforts of the Interfaith Youth Core to introduce interfaith studies to university curricula. With the help of a Luce grant to the Council of Independent Colleges, IFYC, a Chicago-based organization headed by author and activist Eboo Patel, has begun training 120 professors in the Council’s member colleges in how to teach interfaith studies, with the aim of moving interfaith education from “niche to norm” in university classrooms. The article (available only to subscribers) describes in detail Patel’s quest to make religious understanding a core part of undergraduate education.
