Practical Skills for Interfaith Dialogue Program
Are you someone who is curious about faith diversity at McGill? Are you excited to meet and converse with students from different backgrounds? Do you want to enhance your dialogue skills? Apply now to be part of a small cohort that will take part in this four-part series to build a community of practice that is unique on campus. All students are welcome to apply, no prior experience required!
Applications to be part of the Fall 2023 cohorts are now open! The nature of this program requires mutual trust that builds over time, and the sessions are designed to create a safe space through activities that progressively deepen a sense of community within the cohort. For these reasons, no new participants will be admitted once the program is under way.
