In May 2002, the Griffith University Multi-Faith Centre was opened on the Nathan Campus through generous donations from various individuals and faith communities. The Centre was envisioned as a venue where people from diverse faith, religious and spirituality traditions can deepen their understanding of their own faith and actively participate in inter-faith dialogue, education and action.
The Multi-Faith Centre also seeks to weave understanding, education, research and advocacy in inter-faith dialogue towards a culture of peace in local, national and global contexts.
In this regard, the Multi-Faith Centre joins the efforts of many organizations and millions of people worldwide committed to building a world based on principles of peace, compassion, active non-violence, justice, human rights, intercultural respect, sustainability and spirituality.
Since its opening, the Multi-Faith Centre has been host to a number of events promoting multi-faith dialogue especially through talks and symposia featuring scholars and practitioners from various faiths. As the Centre continues to expand its programs in the forthcoming years, it will be seeking and welcoming opportunities to collaborate with institutions, organizations and individuals in Australia and internationally to fulfill common visions, goals and purposes.
