President's Interfaith Challenge

We participated in this as one of the first college campus since 2011.  Our first year, we had:  

  • 33 campus partners (office, departments, student groups)
  • 35 community (organizations) partners or participants
  • 24 events and programs
  • Total people attending or involved in events:  2,215
  • Trip to White House and television coverage on WGAL
  • White House is inviting colleges and universities to continue the program as part Civic and Community Engagement.
