Georgia Tech/Emory: Compassion and Leadership in a Multi-Faith World"
The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at the Georgia Institute of Technology and
the Candler School of Theology at Emory University announce
a new initiative, the Leadership and Multi-Faith Program (LAMP). It is focused on the complexities of life, work, and leadership in a world where many faith traditions converge dynamically in geo-political space, whether our encounters are local, regional, or global.
The Candler School brings to this initiative expertise in Christian encounters with multi-faith religious traditions. The Ivan Allen College brings expertise in robust cross-disciplinary and cross-arena engagement.
The kickoff for this initiative is a public event, a half-day symposium. It is envisioned as the first of three symposia (Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016) focused on the intersections of faith, leadership, and civic action. Each symposium will identify a specific lens through which to interrogate challenges and opportunities at these intersections.
