February 11-12, 2016, Northeastern University
The Tufts University Chaplaincy invites any interested students, staff, or faculty to join us for the first-ever New England Interfaith Student Summit (NEISS) on Thursday, February 11 through Friday, February 12. Nobel Peace Prize Winner Leymah Gbowee, a leader of the interfaith women’s movement which helped to end the Second Liberian Civil War in West Africa, will deliver the keynote address at the Opening Ceremony on Thursday, February 11 at 7 pm. Ms. Gbowee has pioneered Christian-Muslim nonviolent action and dialogue with important relevance for our current climate. Her Thursday keynote and Friday session will help frame a gathering with dynamic leadership workshops, interfaith dialogues, inter-campus networking, community service, and experiences to learn about worship and spiritual practice from other traditions.
The schedule is:
Keynote/Opening Ceremony – Thursday, February 11, 2016, 7-8:30 pm, Northeastern University
New England Interfaith Student Summit (NEISS) – Friday, February 12, 2016, 9:30 am-5:45 pm, Northeastern University
