About the Challenge

President Barack Obama has emphasized interfaith cooperation and community service as an important way to build understanding between different communities and contribute to the common good. As a result, the White House launched the President's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge in 2010, an initiative inviting institutions of higher education to commit to a year of interfaith and community service programming on campus.

Interfaith service involves people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds tackling community challenges together--for example, Protestants and Catholics, Hindus and Jews, Muslims and non-believers--all building a Habitat for Humanity house together. Interfaith service impacts specific community challenges, from homelessness to mentoring to the environment, while building social capital and civility.
