Dr. Mary Evins, director of the American Democracy Project at Middle Tennessee State University, worked with the Tennessee Board of Regents to organize a two-day summit that brought together participants in the “Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges through Religious Pluralism in Tennessee” initiative, which is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The summit featured guest speakers, panel discussions with community leaders, music featuring several religious traditions, ethnic food, and presentations by faculty from Cleveland State Community College and Jackson State Community College, ADP at MTSU’s leading community college partners in the project. Hosts for the summit were the Islamic Center of Tennessee and the Baha’i Faith Community Center.
