Interfaith Challenge

President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Challenge

Last year the Office for Religious Life and the Haas Center for Public Service collaborated on the President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge in a project concerning immigration, hunger and homelessness. This year, together with the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society, which is mounting a campuswide initiative on “Ethics of Wealth,” our focus will be “Poverty, Wealth and Faith”. We will continue our relationships with our existing community partners, as they address poverty along with immigration, hunger and homelessness.

Students will be invited to engage in community service through the Haas Center, participate in monthly reflection discussions informed by the Ask Big Questions project of Hillel International, and enroll in a quarter‐long student‐initiated class, “Interfaith@Noon.”
