Youth inter faith dialogue and learning - Higher Education chaplains

This short survey seeks information which can help increase HE students’ ability to engage in inter faith action and dialogue and aid them in developing their skills for this. 
We would very much value hearing from you about inter faith projects/initiatives on your campus and some of the resources that you have found particularly helpful for supporting and promoting inter faith learning and action on campus.
Information provided by chaplains will be used to help create a new section of IFN’s website  which will include:
  • examples of resources for inter faith understanding and cooperation that are already available and being used in HE institutions; and
  • examples of new approaches being taken to respond to the mainly virtual world of interaction brought about by the pandemic.
It will also help the Inter Faith Network for the UK strengthen and develop its broader ongoing programme of work to support and encourage inter faith understanding and cooperation, including Inter Faith Week.

All questions are voluntary.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us: 

Thank you, in advance, for your kind assistance

1. About you


2. In your chaplaincy role are there publications, videos, courses, organisations or other resources that you have found helpful in supporting student inter faith learning or action?


3. Have you used the annual Inter Faith Week in November - or other special Days/ Weeks - helpful in encouraging student inter faith engagement?


4. Are there groups within your university running inter faith initiatives?
These might be ones led by the chaplaincy, staff, students or an outside organisation which runs campus inter faith programmes such as the Council of Christians and Jews, Faith and Belief Forum or Building Bridges


5. Are there ways in which inter faith activity within your university has changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the response measures?
If so, it would be helpful if you could tell us a little about that and about whether new ideas/modes of engagement are emerging that could be useful for others to consider.


6. In terms of development of good inter faith relations on campus, are there particular possibilities or challenges that you would highlight?


7. Permissions
