CSM to Hold Interfaith Conversation

STEM vs. STEAM

The College of Southern Maryland‘s Global Initiatives Committee invites the community to an interfaith panel discussion, “Seeking Common Ground: An Interfaith Conversation for Our Times,” from 2:30 to 4 pm May 15, 2018, at the college’s Prince Frederick Campus.

The event will bring representatives from multiple faiths into a meaningful conversation about the role of faith in our times. The GIC Committee hopes this conversation will reveal some universal principles that apply to all faiths and will encourage greater understanding and cooperation among faith-based communities.

The event is free. Call 443-550-6027 or email mmaratta@csmd.edu for more information.
