Supporting the UNF Interfaith Center

We are creating our community’s next generation of leaders. Our community’s individuals, non-profits, corporations, and foundations can ensure the future success of the UNF Interfaith Center through their participation and support of the Center’s initiatives. As the University and Center continue to grow, greater funds are required to support increased needs of our students and staff.

Philanthropic support from friends and Interfaith Center alumni provides crucial dollars needed to fill the gap in state funding, helping the Center fulfill its mission and vision. The continued success of the Center will be sustained only with your important and generous support.

Interfaith Center Recognized by Interfaith Youth Core

The UNF Interfaith Center and its associated student club, Better Together @ UNF, have been recognized by the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), a national non-profit organization founded by Eboo Patel, a noted interfaith activist and an advisor to President Barack Obama.

The IFYC profiled the UNF Interfaith Center and Better Together in a case study video completed a few months ago. The video is intended as a training tool to help other public universities develop best practices for interfaith cooperation. It can be found on IFYC’s YouTube channel here.

 

IFYC also included the UNF Interfaith Center in their resource, "Interfaith at Public Universities: Promising Practices" which you can access here.
