Tune in to hear GTU President James Donahue on KQED's Forum Thursday, October 25, at 10:00 am with host Michael Krasny together with NPR Religion correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty. Their topic, "God in the White House," is based on our Thursday, Oct. 18 panel discussion on religion and the upcoming presidential election.

During this event Zaytuna College's co-founders, Hatem Bazian, Zaid Shakir, and Hamza Yusuf will speak about the recent wave of unrest in Libya, Egypt and other parts of the Muslim world that was set off due to the posting of the video maligning the Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
James A. Donahue (President, Graduate Theological Union) and Munir Jiwa (Assistant Professor, Graduate Theological Union) will also speak at this event.
Sandy Tolan, Associate Professor - Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC will be moderating this event.
GTU President Donahue delivered his inaugural address to the GTU community and friends on February 15, 2001.
I am thrilled, honored, and humbled to be standing here. Whatever privileges I've had in my working life—and there have been many—they all have been superceded by being with you today at my alma mater, the Graduate Theological Union.
We will explore the Christian, Mormon, Muslim and Jewish perspectives on the upcoming election and the role of religion in American politics, with attention to recent discussions around the separation of Church and State, on religious freedom and its role in public policy, and U.S. foreign policy.
