2013 Honorable Mention
for the Inspiring Action Award!
Better Together is a national student driven campaign for interfaith action. On Westminster Campus, the Better Together 2012-2013 Campaign is mobilizing college students to voice their values, engage with others, and act together to make the world a better place for everyone. Participating in The Better Together campaign will give you the opportunity to take a stand for interfaith cooperation while you impact social issues you care about deeply. Through interfaith action, college students everywhere will prove that we are better together and tell a different, positive story of young people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds taking action together.
In May 2013, Westminster College was given recognition by receiving the IFYC Honorable Mention for the Inspiring Action Award because of our committment to social action on campus and to mobilizing the campus to interfaith community service.
