Welcome to the Spirituality and Religion in Higher Education Knowledge Community. Our leadership team works to support and network professionals, students, faculty, and other stakeholders who are invested in enhancing conversations, research, and best practices for spirituality, secularism, and religion in higher education. We look forward to your engagement and feedback and please let us know how we can best support you in this work.
On Monday, December 11, 2017 at 3:00 pm EST, the Spirituality and Religion in Higher Education Knowledge Community is hosting Mapping the Online #DigitalFaith. This experience is free to SRHE KC members! This presentation seeks to help educators better support students’ spiritual development by mapping out the evolving boundaries of the online interfaith landscape, locating online brave spaces for religious exploration, and identifying ways to facilitate interfaith engagement within these digital spaces.
Does your school’s first-year student orientation have an interfaith component? Perhaps this is the first time you have been asked this question. If so, you’re not alone. Many first-year student orientation programs address racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender diversity on campus, while worldview diversity is left out of the mix. For those unfamiliar with the term, a worldview is one’s guiding life philosophy, and can be religious, spiritual, non-religious, or some combination of these. Worldview diversity, then, indicates the presence of a variety of different outlooks when it comes to answering life’s deepest questions.
