Download the BrochureReligious Life fosters a spirit of hospitality that supports and encourages all students, faculty, and staff in honoring the sacred. In this environment of education and growth, there are safe and respectful times and places to wrestle with the hard questions of life. The University Chaplain, Director of Campus Ministry, and adjunct campus ministers are available to students of all faith traditions for pastoral conversations around faith and personal matters. The Executive Board meets regularly to plan religious life events and is comprised of student leaders representing both Campus Ministry and Interfaith Initiatives.  Please download our brochure through the link on the right to learn more about our programs.

The Religious Life office is transitioning from Chris's House to the Matthews Ministry Center, which will house Religious Life, the Office of the University Chaplain, Campus Ministry, and Interfaith Initiatives. Still Point, a sacred space open to all for prayer and meditation, will remain at Chris's House.

“New House, New Life, New You”
