About Us

Plug Into Interfaith Dialogue!

Interfaith Online works to create an environment for college students across the country to connect and discuss topics of religion and faith. We seek to provide a safe place for students of different backgrounds to understand one another, share their experiences, and engage in difficult conversations.

Why Now?

Interfaith Online was started in May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During a time when it felt extra hard to connect, Interfaith Online's co-founders wanted to create a virtual space for college and graduate students to foster important conversations surrounding faith and daily life. Since then, Interfaith Online has met once a week, every week, over Zoom. Bringing students together from across the country, all of us have learned so much during our personal and engaging discussions!

Anti-Racism Action Planning
