Volunteerism is so important on such a large scale.  No matter what you are interested in, what you do for a living, or what you believe in there is a cause that needs your help! That is why we love our partners, with their busy schedules they still make volunteerism such an important aspect in their department or organization. Thank you for all that you do!

 The UNF Interfaith Center

What is the UNF Interfaith Center?The Center is here to support students in their development as whole individuals—to help them ask the big questions of life—who am I? What are my values? What is my purpose in life? Who are my friends?  


What is the Mission? Our mission is to engage the UNF campus around pluralism (religious and non-religious) and to provide distinctive programs and services for students to voice values, engage with others, act together, and lead others to do likewise.  

 Why get involved? The key to our mission is the inclusion of students who are religious and non-religious who want to explore the big questions of life and get involved in interfaith cooperation—working together in common action for the common good while building bridges that connect people across differences of religious/non-religious identity. That is why the Interfaith Center works closely with the UNF Volunteer Services—to connect UNF students with opportunities in the Jacksonville community to work together for the common good. 

 What types of students get involved in Interfaith Cooperation?  

Student of many different backgrounds and religious/non-religious identities get involved but what they have in common are the following shared values:

Respect—Respect for religious and non-religious identities;
Relationships—Mutually inspiring relationships that create a strong sense of community based; and
Common Action—Working together for the common good based on the shared values of community service, equality, justice, compassion, and action for change.


How to get involved?  Getting involved is easy. Here are some of your options:
