Human Fraternity Fellows Program

The Human Fraternity Fellows Program enabled a select group of 12 to 15 talented students who participated in our Human Fraternity Dialogues to engage deeper online and to convene for a study tour and in-person dialogue in Abu Dhabi in February 2024. The fellows have worked to diagnose obstacles to inclusive campus communities, identify existing positive practices, and develop concrete proposals for creating a culture of encounter that might be implemented within and across universities around the world.

In September 2022, the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, and the Muslim Council of Elders hosted a gathering of more than 40 students from 17 nationalities and multiple religious traditions in Washington, DC, to discuss the Document on Human Fraternity as it relates to the challenge of building more inclusive campus communities.

Building on the gathering and its lessons, the partners launched the Human Fraternity Dialogues in February 2023, virtually convening students around the world for 90-minute conversations (in English) about human fraternity and how to build interreligious solidarity in their local communities. We are now launching the Human Fraternity Fellows Program to continue these dialogues with a smaller group of students committed to advancing human fraternity in their university communities.
