The Division of Student Affairs will foster interfaith cooperation and learning among students and increase the capacity of staff to understand interfaith issues and religious diversity.
Tommies United Dinner
Student Affairs partnered with the Muslim Christian Dialogue Center and the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning to host a dinner and interfaith dialogue opportunity for student leaders on campus.
The Diversity Activities Board partnered with the Centers for Interfaith Learning to host "A Taste of South Indian and Sephardic Jewish Music."
Student Affairs works with partners across campus to support the Project for Mindfulness and Contemplation (PMC). The mission of the PMC is to create a safe space for supporting and educating the St. Thomas community in meditative and contemplative practices.
As part of our "Movies that Matter" series, Student Affairs showed "Mariam," a film about a Muslim woman in France who is forced to choose between her religion and her education.
