The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life educates and models exploration and expressions of faith and spirituality; nurtures a welcoming, supportive, courageous environment where people engage one another for meaningful and balanced living.
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.
