New View Film Series

The Butler University Center for Faith and Vocation and Center for Interfaith Cooperation continue to co-sponsor this unique webinar series to promote understanding and foster respect for differences through the lenses of interfaith understanding, diversity, civil discourse, and social justice. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series — a partnership between Center for Interfaith Cooperation and Butler University’s Center for Faith and Vocation — journeys outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through films. Each screening is followed by a discussion of the film.

Partnership with NAMI Indiana

There is a partnership between Center for Interfaith Cooperation and the National Alliance on Mental Illness — Indiana. Its mission is to empower faith leaders to improve the lives of people and families affected by mental health conditions.


We exist to empower faith leaders to improve the lives of people and families affected by mental health conditions.


​ Connecting faith leaders, mental health providers, and people with lived experience strengthens the community’s support network.

Educating faith leaders and the public about mental health and the role of faith reduces stigma and encourages recovery.

​ Advocating for compassionate polices improves the well-being of all people with mental health conditions.
