2022 Interfaith Leadership Summit|What is the Interfaith Leadership Summit? The Interfaith Leadership Summit is the largest gathering of students and educators with a commitment to American religious pluralism. Each year, hundreds of people who care about the future of our religiously diverse society converge to learn, train, share, and get inspired to bring the movement for interfaith cooperation back to their campuses and communities. Over the course of three days, participants learn to bridge divides and forge friendships across lines of religious and worldview differences. For the 2022 Summit, we are excited to gather in-person while still offering a virtual component on ReligionAndPublicLife.org. Come to the Summit with the passion to bring people together, and leave equipped with the knowledge and skills to make it happen. Who is the Interfaith Leadership Summit for? Any undergraduate student, graduate student, or educator at an undergraduate college or university within the United States is eligible to attend the Interfaith Leadership Summit. Email [email protected] if you have questions or want to talk with an Interfaith America staff member.$75
