On Tap: The National Faith, Justice and Civic Learning Conference

Looking for a dose of inspiration this summer? Head to Chicago on June 16-17 for the National Faith, Justice and Civic Learning Conference held at DePaul University.

Co-sponsored by the Interfaith Youth Corps, DePaul University’s Division of Student Affairs, the conference aims to advance “the understanding that our teaching, learning, scholarship, and service are enriched when we integrate the often fragmented dimensions of our institutions and greater society.”

The goals of this two day conference include: disseminating research findings on the intersection of faith, justice, social responsibility and civic/service-learning, sharing faith perspectives and practices on these topics, focusing on justice and faith, discussing service-learning’s impact on faith and vocation and secular and faith-based educational institutions, fostering an interfaith dialogue and cooperation in higher education around these topics.

Among the distinguished speakers are Rabbi Jill Jacobs (the Rabbi-in-Residence for Repair the World grantee-partner Jewish Funds for Justice) and Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz (Founder and President of Repair the World grantee-partner Uri L’Tzedek).
