The Rumi Forum - University of Delaware Chapter

Rumi Forum Delaware Chapter was established on February 15, 2009 at the University of Delaware by a group of students and faculty. Our main objective is to improve interactions in the university community by bridging the “dialogue gap” between students and local community. We value universal values such as love, respect, tolerance, mercy, and compassion which are crucial for healthy dialogue in a diverse environment.

We believe that lack of understanding is the root cause of many problems we are experiencing now. We address the key issues all the society face such as intolerance, prejudice, and ignorance. Therefore we try to reach out community leaders, academicians, faith leaders, artists, government officials, and local administrators. We organize events including luncheons, dialog dinners, interfaith trips, and conferences to establish an environment for exchanging ideas between different parts of the community.
