IUPUI partnered with Ivy Tech Community College to introduce fifteen community college instructors to the religious traditions of Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist communities in greater Indianapolis. With support from NEH, “World Religions in Greater Indianapolis” utilized primary and secondary humanities texts and humanities experts at several local universities, supplemented by field trips and discussions with local practitioners, to explore these five world religions, their history and life in the United States, and their presence in and contributions to cultural life in the metropolitan area. The program resulted in the production of 150 course modules that incorporate knowledge about world religions into Ivy Tech’s core humanities curriculum.
