ISC Mission Statement

CAFE (Conversation, Action, Faith, and Education)

CAFE is a student organization that grew out of the University Chaplaincy’s pre-Orientation program CAFE. It is a forum for religious, philosophical, interfaith, and inter-belief conversation, learning, and action. It promotes discussion of cultures, politics, and religions and strives to dig deeper than mere tolerance, aiming for a deep pluralism that requires mutual understanding, engagement, and the holding of strong convictions in relationship. It meets every other week during term for lively conversation and is open to all students. For more information, contact the leaders listed on the Communities page or visit Tufts CAFE on Facebook:
