The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life provides a welcoming and supportive environment for spiritual and religious explorations and expressions of faith.
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.

Your Personal Spiritual Details
It's true, this office does try to connect the students staff and faculty with the spiritual practices that most suit them. By direct communication, notification of programs or events, campus and building signs, and personal communication through the Interfaith Activators we actively encourage awareness of spiritual opportunities on campus. The knowledge that many Lawrentians view religion and spirituality as an extension of their work and study creates direct and indirect connections which provides balance in the classroom, lab, rehearsal room, and dorm room.
Part of the connection we strive for is derived from basic knowledge of who our students are, and how their spirituality manifests. To accurately access who we communicate with, our internal systems require each student to maintain their own spiritual information. While much of this information is collected at the time of admission, we know that growth happens and change can occur. Students who wish to acknowledge or update their spiritual affiliation in Voyager, are welcome to do so at any time. Within Voyager, select Personal Information / How to Change Personal Information / Religious Affiliation. A dropdown menu will be presented for you to select from one of the 40+ options offered. Information is private, confidential and never shared.
Students can help themselves, and help the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life connect them to the services and outreach that best suit their path.
