The Brian and Jean Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue promotes scholarship and encourages strategies for living peacefully in a religiously diverse world. This vision is realized through dialogue, education, and community-building efforts.

Every religion demands that we alleviate suffering. Every religion dreams of a better world. Yet each religion offers different means to attain these goals. The Hickey Center believes that individuals can learn from each other, understand each other, and work together in a respectful way for the common good.

The Hickey Center  includes individuals who are diverse in religion, faith, ethnicity, race, gender, and education. The common denominator is a desire to develop skills to clarify and improve individual and community-wide communications on matters of religion, faith, and spirituality; to understand individual and communal faiths; to establish methodology proper to our goals; and to develop the capacity for living in a pluralistic world.

We seek to understand and develop research tools, knowledge, and skills to benefit our common humanity.

Our goals are:

  • To establish an environment conducive to understanding the diversity of faiths in our world and community.
  • To communicate the skills necessary for people of diverse faiths to live together in peace and justice.
  • To provide educational resources to aid in establishing an environment of understanding and equality.
  • To teach individuals, communities and institutions how to live and communicate more effectively with those from other religions and faith backgrounds.
