You are invited to engage community leaders as they tell the story about how their faith undergirds and inspires their leadership, and their work to build a better world. Learn from business leaders, scientists, professors, and community activists as we share a meal, listen, and engage in conversation.
We are a diverse community here at the U, and these conversations are meant to be ecumenical and interfaith in nature. We strive to reflect this in our speakers, and in the conversation partners that we engage with around tables, as we share food and conversation.
