COEXIST Oglethorpe

President: Brad Firchow (bfirchow@oglethorpe.edu)

Advisor: Reshmi Hebbar (rhebbar@oglethorpe.edu)

COEXIST Oglethorpe was started to meet President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge which challenges more than 300 colleges and universities around the country to promote intentional interfaith dialogue and community service. Oglethorpe will focus specifically on the issues of health and hunger. Each year we choose an issue to champion. Last year we focused on how gender and sexuality intersect with faith. This year, we are highlighting the intersection of politics and faith. We explore these themes through site visits to sacred spaces and places of worship throughout Metro Atlanta in addition to student-led panels and holiday programming. This effort is open to all Oglethorpe students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
