Title:Interfaith at University of Illinois
Author(s):Tiffany Champion
Subject(s):Interfaith, cooperation, structure, intolerance, awareness, social movement,
Abstract:What is the role of the Interfaith movement on this campus? I looked into the Interfaith in Action RSO and examined the motives, structure and impact. Who are they and what do they do? How do their activities achieve these goals? How effective are they on the UIUC campus? Is there a connectedness/awareness between religious RSOs? What obstacles has Interfaith run in to and what accomplishments do they have?
