Mission and Strategic Plan
Vision: What We Strive to Be
The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life (formerly Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life) nurtures an inclusive community of communities consisting of diverse religious, spiritual, and secular perspectives, wisdom traditions, and worldviews where all students, faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and staff are invited to experience hospitality, to engage in discovery, and to practice generosity.
Mission: What We Seek to Do
We build a community of diverse religious and spiritual perspectives, wisdom traditions, and worldviews where students, faculty, and staff may experience belonging, support, care, and reflective engagement as they take part in:
- Vibrant campus communities that encompass, cultivate, and teach about diverse religious, spiritual, and secular perspectives, wisdom traditions, and worldviews;
- Authentic interfaith engagement and non-sectarian reflection;
- Careful discernment and compassionate, ethical action in the world as individuals and as a community;
- Emotional and spiritual support offered through pastoral care and community gathering.
