 Tarah fall 2016

Interfaith Center Director:

Tarah Trueblood, JD, MDiv, MA


 I serve as the first Director of UNF's Interfaith Center and am responsible for the overall operation of the Center including strategic management, internal and external collaborations, teaching, coaching, student-centered programs and services, and business administration.

The most rewarding aspect of my job, which makes it more of a vocation, is working closely with students--mentoring leaders, exploring identity and values, and engaging the big questions of life.
One of my favorite quotes comes from Valarie Kaur, interfaith leader, filmmaker, civil rights advocate: "The way we make change is just as important as the change we make." In my work at UNF, I hope to live out this value in the way I go about the making of positive social change.

 Dori fall 2016

Interfaith Center Office Assistant:

Dori Schaffield, MTS



I work as the office assistant for the Interfaith Center here at UNF. I handle general inquiries regarding the center, manage the budget, and maintain our online presence.


As a student at UNF, I saw firsthand the importance of community during college. The Interfaith Center does work I truly believe in, giving me the opportunity to help young adults form meaningful connections with people of faith identities they may not otherwise have the opportunity to meet.
