Christian-Muslim Dialogue Committee

Mission Statement

Duquesne's Christian-Muslim Dialogue Committee (CMDC), was commissioned by the dean of the College of Liberal Arts in 2009 with the mission to promote healthy and peaceful Christian-Muslim relationship in the United States and Africa. CMDC has both unilaterally and in collaboration with other university offices, departments, and centers organized several public lectures, workshop, and symposia.  The committee consists of multi-disciplinary faculty whose primary objectives include exploring the social, cultural, economic, philosophical, historical, political, and religious roots and solutions to interreligious conflicts in Africa and the United States. CMDC also seeks to collaborate with academic, religious, and social institutions in Africa and the United States, consistent with the mission of Duquesne University, toward an end to existing interreligious conflicts. While Africa and the United States are the stirring focuses of this committee, it is hoped that its activities will eventually establish global effects.
