Consortium for Christian–Muslim Dialogue

Mission Statement

Duquesne’s Consortium for Christian–Muslim Dialogue (CCMD) was commissioned by the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts in 2009 to promote a healthy and peaceful Christian–Muslim relationship in the United States and Africa. CCMD has both single-handedly and in collaboration with other University offices, departments, and centers organized public lectures, workshops, and symposia.  The committee consists of multi-disciplinary faculty whose primary objectives include exploring the social, cultural, economic, philosophical, historical, political, and religious roots of and solutions to inter-religious conflicts in Africa and the United States. CCMD also seeks to collaborate with academic, religious, and social institutions in Africa and the United States, consistent with the mission of Duquesne University, toward ending existing inter-religious conflicts. While Africa and the United States are the stirring focuses of this committee, we hope that its activities will eventually have global effects.
