Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In March 2011, President Obama extended an invitation to college and university presidents across the country to bring together diverse religious groups on campus for interfaith cooperation and community service programming. The program challenges students and administrators to serve together on projects that strengthen their communities and unite people of diverse religious backgrounds. Response in the first year was overwhelming with 270 institutions participating.

President Obama has extended the challenge with an invitation to all institutions of higher education to join this year by developing a plan for interfaith/community service and joining other institutions in a community of learning.
