Luther College religion professor Guy Nave has been selected from a national pool of nominees to participate in a week-long faculty seminar in Chicago in June on the teaching of interfaith understanding.

25 faculty members will participate in a seminar offered by the Council of Independent Colleges and the Interfaith Youth Corps, with support from the Henry Luce Foundation. The seminar will be led by two leading scholars: Eboo Patel, founder and president of the Interfaith Youth Corps, a Chicago-based organization building the interfaith movement on college campuses, and Laurie Patton, president of Middlebury College and former dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences and the Robert F. Durden professor of religion at Duke University.

The program aims to broaden faculty members' knowledge and strengthen their teaching of interfaith understanding through the development of new courses and resources.

Nave has taught in the Luther College religion department since 2001, focusing on the topics of Christianity, the New Testament, religious meaning, and race.
