Advancing Interfaith Cooperation and Community Service In Higher Education
The Interfaith Community Service (IFCS) Initiative at Oregon State University (OSU) aspires to initiate meaningful dialogue between religious and nonreligious individuals, bringing together students from all walks of life under the common umbrella of community service.
Why this initiative is relevant to the campus community at Oregon State University
IFCS comes from a commitment to the wellness of students and staff, and a commitment to diversity and a socially just community. OSU acknowledges the importance of spiritual development, and recognizes the link that many students make between charitable involvement and the exploration of spiritual belief (Astin et.al., 2010).
