Chamberlain Interfaith Fellowship
The Chamberlain Interfaith Fellowship (CIF) is in honor of the late Dr. Ted J. Chamberlain (d. 2010), who served as Vice President for Student Development at Eastern University for many years. The fellowship carries forward Ted’s unique ability to craft relationships of meaning by bringing together Christian and Jewish students for an opportunity to learn about each other’s faith tradition; reflect upon commonalities and differences in the spirit of emerging friendship; grow spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually; and engage in a social justice project for the common good of society and the world. CIF will enable fellows to experience what the late Krister Stendal of Harvard University once referred to as “holy envy” – a deep appreciation of the beauty, depth, and power of another religious tradition.
