Religious and Spiritual Life

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) serves a diverse campus community that includes people of a wide array of traditional and progressive religious and secular identities. We encourage religious, spiritual, and ethical exploration and practice as well as multifaith dialogue, understanding, and action within and beyond our campus community.

ORSL enhances the academic and community life of students, faculty, staff, alumni, families, and friends of the college in relation to religion, spirituality, and ethics. Whether you have a strong religious faith and are involved in a traditional religious community, or you have little or no experience with organized religion, we offer many opportunities for you to deepen your worldview and learn about those of others. ORSL offers communities, programs, services, spaces, and resources to help you develop the role of spirituality and ethics in your life.

The ORSL director works in partnership with other professional religious leaders from the community to nurture and deepen religious, spiritual, and ethical life on campus. We also join with such others as the Multicultural Resource Center and the Bonner Center for Service and Learning to examine religious and moral perspectives on issues of race and class, gender and sexuality, social and ecological justice, love and work, the arts and sciences, among others.
