Interfaith dialogue programs are becoming more widely used in higher education around the world, due in large part to increased interfaith conflict and tension globally. This paper shares findings from research on an interfaith dialogue initiative at an American university. Based on in-depth observational research, findings show that interfaith dialogue has many challenges and, in some cases, can lead students to become even more angry towards, or distrustful of, their peers from other religious backgrounds than they were before their interfaith dialogue experience. Lessons from this research can point to both practical and pedagogical recommendations for how to pursue interfaith dialogue that avoids the pitfalls identified and is successful in building interfaith peace.
