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.
Additionally, the IFYC awarded Interfaith Coordinator Rachael McNeal a scholarship to represent UNF at the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge at the White House. Rachael will lead a delegation including two students, who have been granted financial support from Student Government to attend.
