The Intersection of Faith and Education in Senegal

In July 2015, Sabrina Khan conducted interviews in Dakar, Senegal as part of an ongoing initiative of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service at Georgetown University. Her research centered on the intersection of faith and education in Senegal, particularly the role private Catholic schools play in the Muslim-majority country. In Dakar, she focused on how teachers, administrators, executives, and students view interreligious dynamics among students of Catholic schools. During her fieldwork in Senegal, she spent one week in Mbour, where she stayed at the Teacher Training Center (Centre de Formation P├ędagogique), a center dedicated to training future teachers of Catholic schools. While in Mbour, she interviewed professors, students, and administrators about their views on religious toleration, freedom, and solidarity within Catholic schools and what role these schools play in the development of pluralism and citizenship in Senegal.
