R. David Coolidge, Associate University Chaplain for the Muslim Community at Brown University, will be the keynote speaker at Bryant University’s 17th Annual Interfaith Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, Feb. 7, 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the Stepan Grand Hall of the Bello Center for Information and Technology on the Bryant campus, 1150 Douglas Pike.

The Interfaith Prayer Breakfast, patterned after the annual National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C., is designed to give attendees an inspirational hour of music, prayer, and a spiritual message.

Chaplain Coolidge will speak about "Faith and Citizenship in Turbulent Times." He converted to Islam during his sophomore year at Brown and went on to have extensive training in Islamic sacred texts, researched the interpretation and practice of Islam in 21st-century America for his Master’s degree at Princeton. He was an adjunct instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at St. Francis College in New York and served as a Muslim adviser at Dartmouth, before returning to Brown in 2009 as the university’s Muslim chaplain.

The cost to attend the breakfast is $7 per person. Reservations are required. (Bryant students may use their meal plan to attend; students who are not on the meal plan may attend at no charge.) To make a reservation, call (401) 232-6045 or email by Feb. 5.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Friday, Feb. 15, from 7:30-8:30 a.m.
