Multi-Faith Fellowship

Student Fellowship

Our Multi-Faith Fellowship provides the rare opportunity for genuine learning and community across faith traditions. Honesty, openness, and humility are core values that make the Multi-Faith Fellowship a unique experience on campus. Now in its fourth year, students of any, all, or no faith have participated. The Multi-Faith Fellowship is led by professionals from the CU Office of Religious Life: Imam Ebad Rahman, Ms. Tessa McGowan, and Rabbi Yonah Hain.

What our students are saying:  

“Multi-Faith Fellowship has been one of the highlights of my time at Columbia--an incredible combination of rich intellectual work with laughter, friendship, and great food! ... Whether we're grappling with how a benevolent God can permit suffering or re-naming our favorite ice cream flavors with religious puns, Multi-Faith is always unforgettable” – Christine Piazza, CC'23
