Interfaith Engagement

Interfaith Council

USC has more student religious groups than any other university in the United States, and the Interfaith Council comprises of student leaders representing the diversity of faiths across campus. All USC students are invited to join the Interfaith Council, and to learn and share about their faith traditions from each other. The Interfaith Council sponsors interfaith events such as the Multi-Faith Celebration, Interfaith Service Challenge, Interfaith Memorial Service, and Interfaith Worship at Parent’s Weekend. It meets weekly on Tuesday at 6:00PM for a free dinner at URC 103, starting for Spring Semester on Jan 10. Questions? Email, or Rev. Jim Burklo, Associate Dean of Religious Life:
