Dominican University is taking the leap. In an effort to improve religious understanding, Dominican has partnered with the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) to serve as a model campus for initiating and supporting interfaith dialogue. One of only a handful of schools in the nation to participate in this intensive partnership with IFYC, the initiative will engage the entire university community over a three-year period.

“The timing of this initiative is pertinent and powerful,” says President Donna M. Carroll. “ Looking forward, interfaith dialogue and cooperation are vitally important to the creation of healthy communities, and a university like Dominican, with its own strong Catholic tradition, can be a catalyst for encouraging such conversation.”
