The Office of the Dean of Student Life is pleased to invite you to the 2012 Interfaith Community Service (IFCS) Conference taking place on Saturday, January 21 in the Memorial Union. The IFCS Initiative at Oregon State University (OSU) aspires to initiate meaningful dialogue between religious and nonreligious individuals, bringing together students from all walks of life under the common umbrella of community service. This conference will provide an open forum for students to engage with one another and share how their beliefs and values influence their decisions in life.

We hope to foster rich, eye-opening conversations through several service projects, followed by lunch and a debrief activity. Afterwords, we will host several round-table discussions and informational sessions for students that will encourage personal reflection and civil discourse with one another on topics tied to the value of service, personal meaning, and diverse religious/spiritual beliefs and practices. We will conclude our time together with a reception and keynote speaker.

The conference is free, and morning snacks and lunch will be provided!
