This is a special invitation to complete a free, online inventory of your institution’s efforts in engaging religious and worldview diversity on campus. The Campus Interfaith Inventory uses the Leadership Practices for Interfaith Excellence as a guiding framework, asking a number of specific questions about your institution’s programs and practices for each leadership practice. Any knowledgable campus official can represent their institution in completing this simple and straightforward reflection and planning tool. Sign up here!
Since its 2016 launch, over 360 U.S. colleges and universities have partnered with IFYC to break ground on the Campus Interfaith Inventory. This first-of-its-kind tool enables campuses to capture how they are addressing issues of religious and worldview diversity, and contributes to a national picture of worldview identity, diversity, and engagement across higher education.
We identified thought-provoking benchmarks from the 2019 Campus Interfaith Inventory Report to help the larger field focus on their strategies and practices for interfaith and religious diversity work. Just a few of the key trends include:23% of campuses have offered interfaith or religious diversity training for a broad base of students, beyond core interfaith student leaders.
23% of campuses include “interfaith cooperation” in their current strategic plan. This is most common at Catholic, Protestant and Christ-centered institutions.
34% of campuses have included interfaith themes into required core courses.
28% of campuses report having an interfaith studies course.
Explore these and many more trends, as well as field-wide benchmarks and campus success stories by downloading the most recent national Inventory report,
These insights help every institution understand the landscape of campus religious diversity work and set the agenda for effective interfaith engagement.
This spring, we invite you to share vital info, get your campus recognized, and unlock exclusive new opportunities by participating in the Campus Interfaith Inventory.
