Reflect | Resist | Rejuvenate
The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life is an inter-religious, non-denominational body which promotes spiritual flourishing for all religious and non-religious students, focusing on ethical reflection, social justice, mindfulness and contemplative practice as well as resources grounded in different faith traditions. The Center strives to raise religious literacy and promote interfaith engagement toward a more inclusive, just and engaged citizenry. We invite you to reflect, resist, rejuvenate with us, and remember—whoever you are, wherever you have been and wherever you are going, you are welcome here.

Smith College has embarked on the first phase of an emerging strategic plan for racial justice. The proposed recommendations have been informed by student, staff and faculty contributions to Inclusion in Action work, consideration of student and alumnae/i demands, and discussions with the Inclusion Council and President’s Cabinet.
In this time of urgent racial crisis, we invite comment, critique and refinement of this emerging plan.
