Join Tisch College and the University Chaplaincy for a conversation with author, educator, and interfaith leader, Eboo Patel. Patel is the Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core, the renowned national nonprofit that brings young people from different faiths together to work on social action projects, fostering cooperation instead of conflict among youth of diverse beliefs. Named by U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s Best Leaders, Patel also served on President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Faith Council and partnered with the White House to launch the Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge in 2011. He is the author of four books, including his autobiography Acts of Faith and his recent book, Out of Many Faiths: Religious Diversity and the American Promise. A recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees, Patel is a member of the Young Global Leaders network of the World Economic Forum and was recently selected as one of five future policy leaders to watch by Harvard University's Kennedy School Review.
