20th Annual Multicultural Seminar
Friday, November 4, 2016 from 8:30-3:00 PM
We are proud to present our 20th Annual Multicultural Seminar, The Necessity of Talking about Religion, Faith, and Spirituality in Public Spaces . We hope you will join our speaker, Dafina-Lazarus (D-L) Stewart, Ph.D., on November 4h.
The Necessity of Talking about Religion, Faith, and Spirituality in Public Spaces
Dafina-Lazarus Stewart, Ph.D., will focus on the importance of recognizing the central role that religion, faith, and spirituality play in the lives of many people, including our college students. Acknowledging the centrality of religion, faith, and spirituality -- in our students’ lives as well as in our own -- is appropriate in our work as mental health and counseling professionals, and also in student affairs. This seminar will engage participants in discussions of the myths about recognizing religion, faith, and spirituality in public universities and the discomfort with doing so. Participants will also be encouraged to consider the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary for supporting interfaith dialogue and religious, spiritual, and secular pluralism on college campuses.
