Interfaith Issues

Interfaith Issues

 
The Interfaith Issues Working Group identifies and recommends to the University, through PACBIC, initiatives and actions related to emerging interfaith issues on campus. It engages with campus partners to identify ways to diversify food choices available at a reasonable cost to meet the religious/spiritual and Indigenous dietary needs of McMaster staff, student and faculty members. The Interfaith Issues Working Group has a long-term goal of establishing a permanent interfaith/spirituality gathering place on campus
