Programming is designed to open dialogue between people of many traditions, promote cooperation among people of different backgrounds, and celebrate the diversity in the Grand Forks community.
Programming for the week is diverse, and includes events led by the Jewish Student Association, Christux Rex, UND Free Thinkers, Muslim Student Association, Wiccian and Baha'i faiths. The programming for this week has been collaborative effort among committee members of very diverse backgrounds. Interfaith Week planning committee member Kaitlyn Kelly said, "These events are a way to show people how much all communities of faith add to our community, but they're also opportunities to learn about our neighbors. I think we're hoping that each of these events will draw in people who are curious and willing to ask questions so real learning can take place."
