Mark Luttio selected to participate in Teaching Interfaith Understanding seminar

Lynn University Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion Mark Luttio was selected from a competitive, national pool of nominees to participate in a faculty seminar on teaching interfaith understanding. The seminar is offered by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), with support from the Henry Luce Foundation.   

Twenty-six faculty members will participate in the five-day Teaching Interfaith Understanding seminar, which will take place July 31–Aug. 4, 2016, at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. The seminar will be led by two leading scholars: Eboo Patel, founder and president of IFYC, a Chicago-based organization building the interfaith movement on college campuses; and Laurie Patton, president of Middlebury College and former dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences and the Robert F. Durden Professor of Religion at Duke University. The program aims to broaden faculty members' knowledge and strengthen their teaching of interfaith understanding, with the development of new courses and resources.

"Strengthening the teaching of interfaith understanding at colleges and universities is a high priority at a time when college enrollment—and American society—is becoming more diverse. Strengthening participation in American life with greater understanding of the distinctive contributions of different faiths is a key to America's future success as a democracy," says CIC President Richard Ekman. "The number of institutions that nominated faculty members to participate in the interfaith understanding seminar is most impressive."
