The Department of Social and Cultural Sciences will host the first ever interfaith immersion experience in March during Marquette’s spring break.
The experience will consist of a five-day trip to Dearborn and Hamtramck, Michigan, locations with the largest Muslim population in the U.S. Participants will learn about Islam and about being Muslim in the U.S. today. Tentative activates include visiting mosques, meeting scholars, religious leaders, politicians and activists, participation in a day of service, engaging in daily reflection and eating great ethnic food. Travel, hotel and food expenses are paid by Marquette, however participants are asked to contribute a $200 “co-pay”.
To participate, send in an online application before Saturday, Dec. 30. With any questions, contact Dr. Louise Cainkar.
