Reflect | Resist | Rejuvenate
At the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life we encourage you to think deeply, stand up for your beliefs, exchange ideas, renew your spirit and connect with others. We are a center of diverse cultural and religious learning and expression, spiritual development, hospitality and community engagement. We aim to increase student knowledge and engagement with intersections of religion and world affairs in a diverse, multifaith community and to provide support and guidance to students as they wrestle with questions of meaning, faith and purpose.
