Hindu, Muslim students at Duke create a prayer room together

In Durham, North Carolina, Hindu and Muslim students have cooperated at Duke University to create a campus prayer room.

The founder of Hindu American Seva Charities, Anju Bhargava, is a member of a White House advisory body that is concerned with faith-based and neighborhood partnerships. According to Duke Associate Dean Christy Lohr Sapp, the groups are a model of how differing religions can work together toward common goals. The groups also share office space at Duke, as well.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to diversity, multiculturalism, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
