Interfaith Leadership minor

Transforming the world by transforming lives

The goal of Interfaith Leadership at Texas Wesleyan University is to create compassionately critical thinkers informed about and responsive to the religious and cultural dynamics in diverse settings, such as criminal justice, healthcare, education and business. The current state of religious illiteracy, social injustice and environmental crisis highlights the need for more people equipped with skills for navigating differences while seeking commonality. Following the words of John Wesley to "do good of every possible sort, and, as far as is possible, to all," leaders trained in interfaith skills through our minor will help to make the world a better place through promoting more mutual understanding, empathy and compassion.
