The Interreligious Engagement Initiative (IRI) is a project designed to support a
variety of academic and engagement activities related to the study and practice of
religion in comparative and cross-cultural contexts. Programming will support events
and projects related to religious understanding through academic dialogue and scholarship,
and community engagement through targeted outreach programs. Intercultural understanding
is an educational imperative in higher education and is among the core values of Utah
Valley University. Because religion lies at the heart of cultural identity and relationships,
the university is committed to finding ways to facilitate dialogue across religious
and related ideological lines.
