In addition to providing information about the Center and what we do, this website is a resource for everyone interested in exploring interfaith leadership and learning more about interreligious-interfaith engagement, the value and achievement of pluralism, and the importance of diverse religious perspectives in the public square and in the professions. The Center’s values are built upon the concept of America’s Sacred Ground, which I have developed in my scholarly work, and our Lasallian values, which are the bedrock of Saint Mary’s College's Mission.
