Importance of Interfaith Collaboration

Conversations about faith and religion are often avoided. In the midst of polarized times such topics can be especially daunting. However, as shared by Rev. Brian E. Konkol, dean of Hendricks Chapel, a key to understanding others lies in having these serious conversations.

The Student Assembly of Interfaith Leaders (SAIL) at Syracuse University is a student organization centered around fostering interfaith conversations. The organization is open to all students. Additionally, representatives from each of the student religious and spiritual groups on campus are invited to attend SAIL meetings.

Originally known as the Spiritual Life Council, SAIL was restructured in 2019. It now acts as a formal advisory body to Konkol and offers an important student perspective on critical matters facing Hendricks Chapel. The organization also seeks to develop leaders, serve as a model for interfaith cooperation and develops programs and services that strengthen all religious and spiritual life groups at Syracuse University.
