Muslim non-Muslim Dialogue
Muslim non-Muslim Dialogue is a new educational program of the International Association of Sufism and Dominican University of California’s Campus Ministry. There is a focus on a respectful dialogue, conversation and personal stories amongst Muslim and Non-Muslim students for the sake of having a better understanding and a continuous dialogue. This project is partially funded by the One Nation Bay Area Program and was recently featured in Marin Independent Journal.
Public diplomacy is a critical but often overlooked step towards peace. Our task is to recognize common bonds in our human family and celebrate our differences. In our current geopolitical climate, it is vital for us to understand cultures and religions different from our own in order to expand our knowledge and our information. Diplomacy and mutually-assured survival begin at the person-to-person level.
In that spirit, IAS and Dominican University’s Campus Ministry have opened up an important medium for young adults and the general public to engage on one of the most important topics of our day: Muslim non-Muslim dialogue.
