The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life provides a welcoming and supportive environment for spiritual and religious explorations and expressions of faith. Programs, services, and student groups bring the Lawrence community together for educational opportunities, multifaith conversations around critical topics, campus ceremonies, and religious services and celebrations.
The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is a welcoming place for curious, intentional, respectful engagement with persons of similar, different or no religious tradition, and for quiet personal reflection and spiritual practice.
