* New Interfaith Initiative Looks at Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on September 6

The Office of Academic Affairs and the Department of Religious Life are collaborating on a new interfaith initiative this fall, First Friday Forum @ 4: Faith and Faculty.

Each forum will last 50 minutes, 4:00 pm - 4:50 pm including time for Q & A. Forums will be held in Room 172, Schroeder Family School of Business Building

By highlighting the religious diversity of our faculty, we aim to demonstrate the variety and richness of traditions represented on our campus. The forums will also encourage students and the campus community to widen their understanding of and respect for traditions different from their own.

As an institution affiliated with The United Methodist Church, we want to continually affirm our call to initiate and promote better relationships between Christians and people of other faiths based on informed understanding, critical appreciation, and balanced perspective. Interfaith discussions can make religion a bridge and not a barrier toward a peaceful world. The University of Evansville is committed to religious diversity and interfaith dialogue as we continue to serve an interconnected, global society.

Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science Ryan Kiggins is trained in the fields of International Relations and political theory with research and teaching interests in theories of international relations, cyber security, internet governance, American foreign policy, and international political economy.

Kiggins’ research has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal International Studies Perspectives, and in peer-reviewed edited volumes published by the University of Minnesota Press, Ashgate, and Springer-Verlag. In addition, local ABC and CBS affiliates in Lafayette, Louisiana have relied on Kiggins’ expertise during news reports on international political events including the Arab Spring and the overthrow of Mummar Kaddafi. Kiggins is also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
