University of Rochester Interfaith Chapel Cooperation Circle (CC) consists of The Interfaith Chapel on the University of Rochester. This has been an interfaith campus for 40 years and the mission of The Interfaith Chapel and the related Students’ Association for Interfaith Cooperation is to continue to grow students’ involvement in interfaith work on the campus, in the local community, nationally and internationally. They develop educational, service, worship and social activities involving students, faculty and staff and local community members of different religious and spiritual traditions, including those who claim no affiliation to promote understanding and cooperation and to prepare students to be compassionate and informed global citizens who can contribute in their various professions to the flourishing of all life on this planet.
