Better Together ND

What is Better Together ND? 

BetterTogether ND is a relational interfaith leadership development program offered through the Center for Social Concerns for the 2020–21 academic year. Open to all students who are interested in interfaith cooperation, developing leadership skills, spending a semester/academic year sharing meals, time, and learning together in interfaith small groups led by McNeill Interfaith Leadership Fellows.

Interfaith cooperation is a movement in which participants come from diverse religious and non-religious identities working together for the common good. The movement for interfaith cooperation is open to all those that believe in this vision, including those that identity as agnostic, atheist, or secular humanist (referred to as “non-religious”). Breaking down the walls between religious and non-religious communities is vital to truly engaging religious diversity and building a world of equal dignity and mutual loyalty.
