The Leadership and Multifaith Program (LAMP) is a collaborative endeavor of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at Georgia Institute of Technology and the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. It centers upon the complexities of life, work, and leadership in a world where many faith traditions converge dynamically in geopolitical space, whether these encounters are local, regional, or global. The Candler School of Theology brings to this initiative expertise in Christian encounters with diverse religious traditions. The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts brings expertise in robust cross-disciplinary and cross-arena engagement. Both institutions hold longstanding commitments to excellence in research, education, and community service with the shared goal of interrogating critical elements related to the intersections of faith, leadership, and civic engagement. LAMP supports curricular programming at Emory and Georgia Tech and hosts multifaith public events throughout the year.
