Imagine Jesus, Muhammad, Gandhi and Buddha sat down for coffee in Portland. Would they debate the details of their respective faiths? Or would they find a common ground and use it to create positive change through service?

In this First-Year Learning Community, students will…

  • Learn about the various faith traditions represented in the city of Portland
  • Discover connections between faith, service, justice to ones’ self
  • Listen to the narratives of various faithful people to explore the role that faith plays in service
  • Gain insight into your own beliefs through talking and connecting with members of several faith traditions in Portland
  • Promote the importance of listening to, working with and serving alongside multiple faiths
