MISSION

The Emory University Inter-Religious Council (IRC) is an undergraduate interfaith leadership group on Emory's Atlanta campus that cultivates interreligious literacy, dialogue, understanding, and engagement. The IRC is composed of representatives nominated by the approximately twenty-five undergraduate religious and philosophical organizations on Atlanta campus (plus a select number of at large members), and it meets weekly to build relationships, dialogue together, and provide input and leadership for interfaith engagement at Emory.

DESCRIPTION

Each year, the undergraduate religious and philosophical student organizations on Emory's Atlanta campus are requested to nominate a representative from their board or leadership team to the Atlanta Inter-Religious Council. A select number of at large members from traditions not represented by student organizations may be appointed by the Dean of Religious Life. The IRC meets weekly to build relationships, explore a range of interfaith skills and topics, and plan campus programs that promote dialogue, service, and peace-building.
