UConn Abrahamic Programs serves as an innovative academic umbrella that fosters cross-border research collaboration, intercultural communication, and community engagement to explore emerging trends and issues of critical importance in the Middle East and North Africa. It builds on the intellectual foundations of Abrahamic thought and its three monotheistic faiths—which emphasize the value of acquiring knowledge, using reason, and acting with wisdom—complemented by the long-standing Connecticut tradition of innovative thinking and scientific discovery. Abrahamic Programs convenes a series of workshops that emphasize substantive, in-depth interactions that foster meaningful, lasting relationships and new collaborations.
