The Better Together Interfaith Ally Training Program is a 3 hour stand-alone training that builds capacity for interfaith cooperation and creates a more inclusive and welcoming campus for all. This training was developed by Professor Bonnie Glass-Coffin for the USU Interfaith Initiative. It has already been completed by more than 170 USU students, faculty, administrators, and professional staff. Participation in this capacity-building training will give you both the knowledge and the practice you need to become an effective interfaith ally on campus. This experiential training will:
- Introduce our campus-climate and provide what you need to know to create a welcoming environment for all
- Provide tools for sharing your beliefs and values while learning to engage respectfully with those who are different
- Discuss the obstacles and challenges that must be overcome to build positive relationships across "faith-divides"
- Build a stronger sense of community among participants and contribute to campus transformation in positive ways
