This off-campus retreat is an opportunity to gather with an amazing group of folks to build community, develop skills for facilitating interfaith conversations, and reflect on your own and others' religious and philosophical worldviews! 

Dinner and Dialogue

This six-part series, grounded in a common theme, provides a tasty meal and meaningful conversation for students, staff, faculty, and members of the greater Burlington community. It's an opportunity to regularly gather throughout the academic year and explore our own core values in conversation with others. Dinner is free and we ask folks to RSVP to help us plan for numbers and ensure dietary accommodations.

The Interfaith Center hosts a variety of educational programs as well as special opportunities to celebrate and share diverse sacred and cultural celebrations within our community. For example, the Festival of Light and Dark held in December explores the significance of "light" and "dark" within the various celebrations, understandings and rituals that fall during the transition of seasons. 

Workshops & Training
