On May 18, 2002, The Lawrence Journal-World featured the article "World of Faith" on Baker University's World Religions Course taught by professor George Wiley. Wiley is a Pluralism Project affiliate in northeast Kansas. "The students, who broke down into groups of three or four, scoured the region looking for communities of faith other than Christianity” such as Hindu and Buddhist temples, Jewish synagogues, Baha'i groups and contemplative meditation centers... The groups visited the sites, met the people there and observed their rituals. Students followed up their visits by writing brief profiles of each faith community they visited."
