Georgetown-Campion Hall Seminars
In partnership with Campion Hall, the Jesuit community at Oxford Community, the Berkley Center supports supports a range of seminars designed to promote interreligious understanding, and Muslim-Christian dialogue in particular. Since June 2012, the Center has supported an Understanding Islam course, designed for Catholic clerics based in the United Kingdom.
