Multifaith Student Groups

Multifaith Advisory Council

MAC is a collaborative community of student leaders who meet weekly to explore faith narratives through meaningful dialogue and experiences in order to nurture mutual respect and understanding. MAC members create a spiritual community by attending weekly meetings, organizing events for multifaith engagement on campus and in the community (including education, service, social events and more) and getting access to amazing opportunities through Global Spiritual Life. Undergraduate students will learn from other faith traditions, explore their own spirituality, and gain valuable leadership skills. Click here to meet current council members.

MuCH

MuCh seeks to facilitate discussion between the Muslim and Christian communities on the NYU Campus. It is a place that fosters respect and knowledge between the two faiths, but that also has open doors to anyone who is curious to learn about the beliefs of Islam and/or Christianity. Through weekly group discussions centered around a specific topic, MuCh builds interfaith community and friendships. For more information on how you can get involved, email muchdialogue@gmail.com.

Bridges

Bridges is a student-run club that works in conjunction with the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life and the Islamic Center at NYU to bring together knowledgeable and passionate Jewish and Muslim students to engage in constructive and comparative discussions of our faiths. We strive to learn from each other so that we me may put aside notions of “Us vs. Them” and responsibly confront both our similarities and differences in an attempt to achieve a mutual understanding and sense of shared purpose. For more information on how you can get involved, email bridges.club@nyu.edu.

Agora

Agora is a graduate student group for reflection on societal issues where deep ideas, values, and beliefs are brought forth and shared in a self-directed learning community. The group meets twice a month and is sponsored by the Of Many Institute, the NYU Leadership Initiative, and the Lisa Ellen Goldberg Fellowship program. Our purpose is to create a community forum for graduate students from any discipline or school at NYU to engage with one another and with leading intellectuals on pressing topics of public importance. The framework of Agora is built around a seminar series. For more information on how you can get involved, email agoranyu@gmail.com.
