Interfaith Immersion: Train the Trainers

Train the Trainers: Understanding World Religions and Interfaith Relations is a week-long non-credit certificate course offered each summer, designed for professionals, business people, religious leaders, social workers, and all those who are engaged in dealing with the other.

This course is designed to "train the trainers," teaching the faith and practices of a variety of world religions to foster better understanding and communication in daily life.  Living in this global world, it is essential for a successful career to know the faith and practices of the people you are dealing with.  This program will provide professionals with the necessary tools of communication, how to be respectful, and how to be aware of the religious needs of the other.

This course also includes visits to religious centers of faith to understand worship and provide an opportunity to see these traditions as they are experienced by their communities.
