UConn Abrahamic Programs builds on the long-standing Connecticut tradition of innovative thinking and scientific discovery, while promoting regional academic integration in the Middle East/North Africa Region. This initiative promotes critical thinking and cross-cultural interaction, drawing some of its inspiration from the intellectual foundations of the Abrahamic traditions--illustrated in this inaugural symposium, which highlights historical cooperation between scholars of the three monotheistic religions, and how these collaborations led to great scientific and scholarly contributions.
