  • About Interfaith Week

    Each spring, the Boniuk Council organizes a week-long set of events designed to spread awareness about the diversity of religious beliefs, worldviews, and spiritual traditions on the Rice University campus. The goal of Interfaith Week is to encourage and facilitate interfaith dialogue between students of different beliefs and non-beliefs, while introducing students to modes of contemplative practice.
