Faith Zone Training

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is hosting a Faith Zone religious literacy training open to all staff and faculty on Tuesday, July 23rd from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, breakfast will be available starting at 8:30 AM.

Faith Zone is a workshop that provides staff and faculty with the skills to understand and engage religious, spiritual, and secular identities on a college campus. Based upon a similar model used to educate groups about the LGBTQ community (called Safe Zone), Faith Zone sessions take a dual approach that integrates theory and practice to promote spiritual and religious literacy and dialogue.
