The President’s Interfaith and Community Service Challenge is an initiative inviting institutions of higher education to commit to a year of interfaith cooperation and community service programming on campus. The programming can take various forms such as diverse campus groups working together to implement a specific year-long service project and establishing partnerships between local religious groups to tackle a specific community challenge together.
