Follow students’ London study experience on blog
A diverse group of 11 Syracuse University students from different faith traditions are spending spring break in London exploring the rich and complex dynamics of life in a global, religiously plural city.
The students left Syracuse on March 13 for the The “Many Faiths, One Humanity: Interfaith Travel Study Experience.” They are accompanied by Tiffany Steinwert, dean of Hendricks Chapel; Jikyo Bonnie Shoultz, Buddhist chaplain; Mary Hudson, Pagan chaplain ; Asim Mohammed, Muslim mentor; Ginny Yerdon, Hendricks Chapel’s special events coordinator; and Anne Beffel, Hendricks Chapel’s artist in residence. SU Abroad staff in Syracuse and London have provided support for the trip, and sessions are being held at Faraday House, SU Abroad’s London center.
A blog, http://onehumanity.syr.edu, has been established for family, friends and members of the SU community to follow along on the trip. Members of the group are sharing their experiences through writings and photos.
The students will return to Syracuse on March 22.
