Tarah Trueblood, J.D., M.Div, M.A.  

Director, Interfaith Center  

  

Tarah Trueblood earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Nebraska (Lincoln), a Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts from the Graduate Theological Union’s Pacific School of Religion (Berkeley), and her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Kentucky (Lexington). Prior to joining UNF, she worked as an attorney and then served as the Executive Director of the Wesley Foundation at University of California- Berkeley.   

    

She says the two most important days in our lives are “the day we were born and the day we figure out why.” It’s this second time in our lives – when we figure out our place in the world and how we can contribute to the common good – that Ms. Trueblood is most passionate about helping students figure out. For Ms. Trueblood, community engagement is the common value that we can all rally around. Service to others is what gives students a sense of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in life and allows them to overcome ideological differences as they work towards a common goal.   

 

Ms. Trueblood's Community Scholar project looks at developing international destinations where students can engage in community projects that embed them in different ideological frameworks, both secular and religious.    The final copy of her case study can be found here
