New and Spotlighted Projects

Jay Phillips CenterThe Center will be collaborating with the Jay Phillips Center for Interreligious Studies at the University of St. Thomas on a series of public online live-streaming events. The first will be on September 23, 2020: “Defend the Sacred: Native American Religious Freedom Beyond the First Amendment” with Michael D. McNally, for which Dr. McGraw will serve as moderator. 

Center for Engaged Religious Pluralism LogoThe Center is working with an interdisciplinary team to develop a new executive leadership certificate: “Intercultural-Interfaith Leadership Certificate for Professionals, which launches summer 2021. The program has learning outcomes based on Dr. McGraw’s “Four Dimensions of Interfaith Leadership.” Further, it will focus on three areas in several modules—participants’ personal leadership development and the theory and practice of intercultural-interfaith leadership—and it is anticipated that it will be conducted in a hybrid format. For more information as the project develops, see Educational Initiatives.
