Living Learning Communities

Global Faith

An interfaith Living Learning Community

Faculty Advisors: Dr. Daniel Bucknam, Psychology, and Dr. Erich Lippman, History

Many difficulties in our global society stem from religious intolerance and misunderstanding. This Living Learning Community will strive to offer an alternative view. We will look at the role of faith and values and incorporate those with different faith traditions and those without faith traditions. By interacting with diverse faith perspectives, we hope to strengthen our own values, engage with our own community, and explore global conflicts stemming from faith intolerance. We invite curious learners who want to explore big ideas.  

Activities may include: 

  • Visiting local faith centers.
  • Incorporating meaningful readings and films.
  • Discussing differences openly.
  • Participating in dialogue about faith and values with people from different faith (and non-faith) perspectives.
