What Are Strengths and Weaknesses of Interfaith Learning and Development Model in Different Institutional Settings? Critical Conversations #24

Matthew J. Mayhew, The Ohio State University

 It is important to recognize interfaith learning and development as something educators hope their students will engage as part of the college-going process. Based on equity considerations, it would be irresponsible for educators to leave this type of learning to chance, as an increasing number of students enrolled in college hold minoritized religious identities.

Engaging Civic Religious Pluralism

Becca Hartman-Pickerill, Interfaith Youth Core

College, even in a remote or hybrid structure, is a powerful place for provocative encounters to flourish. Campus learning experiences like dialogues and public speakers paired with reflexive writing are integrated into the curriculum to explicitly foster provocative encounters. These experiences exist alongside resources that foster support like religious and spiritual life staff, peer counselors, counseling centers, advisors, and policies articulating accommodations for one’s religious and spiritual practices.

Alan Acosta, Clark University

Many higher education practitioners believe, deservedly so, that it is a moral obligation for higher education institutions and professionals to teach students how to engage in democratic processes. As higher education professionals continue to conceptualize how to do so, including the various ways democracy can be realized through digital media is an imperative aspect of that education. Helping students understand what appropriate and inappropriate civic engagement looks like is essential to shaping a future generation of citizens. Read more.
