Eboo Patel to Speak for Chaplain’s Speaker Series

Interfaith Leadership: Engaging Faith and
Philosophical Diversity in the 21st Century with Dr. Eboo Patel

Eboo’s core belief is that religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He’s inspired to build this bridge by his faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage, and his American citizenship. He has spoken about this vision at places like the TED conference, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the country. He has written two books about interfaith cooperation, Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground. Some people ask if Eboo ever stops talking about interfaith. If it’s any indication, his five-year-old son can define interfaith cooperation.

Eboo will come back to Vanderbilt University for a special engagement with the Chaplain’s Speaker Series on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 7pm in Benton Chapel. The event is free of charge and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.
