Interfaith Week

 A roadmap saying "Finding Yourself"


The purpose of Interfaith Week is to raise awareness about the diversity of ideological and religious frameworks in America and to provide opportunities for UNF students to engage in respectful dialogue with students from different backgrounds.

11th Annual Interfaith Week: Monday, Feb. 5 - Friday, Feb. 9


Thank you to all of our volunteers and to everyone who came out to our 10th annual Interfaith Week in 2017! See below for a list of upcoming events for our 11th Interfaith Week starting on February 5!


Interfaith Week I-Dinner

When: Thursday, Feb. 1, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Where: Student Union Ballrooms: Building 58W, Room 3703


Looking for a great way to try new delicacies and make new friends? Check out I-Dinner, a UNF tradition that celebrates the intercultural, interfaith and international environment on campus. Enjoy a free meal and a fun activity like trivia, arts & crafts or games!

Interfaith Week Kickoff on the Green

When: Monday, Feb. 5, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Where: The Green


What is Interfaith Week? Why is it important to consider who I am and how I got to this point? Is there any good reason to pass up a free doughnut? If you’ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, come find representatives from the Interfaith Center out on the Green to learn more about the upcoming Interfaith Week events and discuss questions that are important to you. Doughnuts will be given out as they are available, but once they’re gone…they’re gone!


Mulan Movie Night and Sing Along

When: Monday, Feb. 5, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Where: Student Union Auditorium: Building 58W, Room 2704

One of the major questions that we’re posing this Interfaith Week is the question of who we all are. Mulan, the 1998 animated Disney classic, explores the story of a young woman discovering her identity as a hero in spite of the structures that forbid it. Come enjoy an old favorite or see this pop culture staple for the first time.


When: Tuesday, Feb. 6, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Where: Student Union Ballroom: Building 58W, Room 3703  

Modeled after speed dating, Speedfaithing gives students the opportunity to hear from members of the UNF community as they share their abbreviated story of how they came to their current understanding of themselves and their values. Cycle around and hear a variety of stories in 15 minute increments about different people and how they found themselves. Snacks will be provided.

Campus Community Suppers with OneJax

When: Tuesday, Feb. 6, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Where: Student Union Ballroom: Building 58W, Room 3703


OneJax and the UNF Interfaith Center want to learn more about the communities they serve and encourage productive discussions about inclusion and diversity. As a diverse community with people from a multitude of backgrounds, nationalities, ethnic groups, religious traditions, gender identities, and sexual orientations, how do we live together, work together, play together, worship together? What needs to happen in our community to build a more inclusive society? These intimate Suppers are designed to encourage meaningful dialogue in our community. Students will sit in groups of 8-10 with a community leader to discuss these questions. Dinner will be provided.

Storytelling Workshop

When: Thursday, Feb. 8, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm 
Where: Interfaith Center: Student Union Ballroom: Building 58W, Room 3703


If you’ve ever attended a Coffee & Conversation or Speedfaithing event, you’ve heard people share their stories in a way that was impactful and educational. Perhaps you’ve even considered that your story might be worth telling. Come practice writing and sharing your own story of finding yourself at this workshop.

Spiritual Practices Fair

When: Thursday, Feb. 8, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Where: Student Union Ballroom: Building 58W, Room 3703
