American Islamic College (AIC) President, Daoud S. Casewit was invited to share the floor with Cardinal Blase J. Cupich at the Keough School of Global Affairs of the University of Notre Dame on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. The dialogue took place to commemorate the meeting of Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil of Egypt and Saint Francis of Assisi 800 years ago. The relationship that grew from that encounter has served as an example of interfaith dialogue and a reminder that respect of differences can and should be sought. The event was organized by the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion. Its Executive Director, Mahan Mirza, moderated the robust discussion.
