The President's Call


Since his inauguration, President Obama has emphasized interfaith cooperation and community service as an important way to build understanding between different communities and contribute to the common good.

This past spring, the White House launched the challenge and invited campuses around the nation to submit proposals describing how they would advance interfaith and community service initiatives during the course of the 2011-2012 academic year. UW-Madison's proposal was accepted and a small delegation of Madison staff members were asked to be part of the White House kick-off meeting in D.C. in early August.
