Congratulating on the formation of ISC at UNR, Zed, in a statement, pointed out that religion was highly powerful and complex, and a more inclusive understanding of religion was needed. Zed urged the club to become a catalyst for interfaith dialogue because dialogue brought us mutual enrichment and helped us overcome prejudices passed on to us from previous generations.
UNR already has many faith-based student organizations like Latter-day Saint Student Association, Hillel (Jewish), Muslim Student Association, Women's Federation for World Peace-Reno (Unification Church); and Christian groups—InterVaristy Christian Fellowship, Fellowship in Christian Athletes, Living Stones, ROCK Alpha Omega, Younglife's CollegeLife, CHANGE Collegian Network, Newman Center, Little City International Student Fellowship.
