Vanderbilt University is a fertile climate for the clarification of values, the development of a sense of social responsibility, and the examination of personal faith. The Office of Religious Life offers many programs to students to help them understand their own faith and the faith of others. GriefNet is a support network for students dealing with death. The Chaplain’s Speaker Series brings one speaker a semester to help start conversations the University Chaplain and Religious Life want to see happening on campus. The Office also provides leadership for Project Dialogue, a University-wide forum of speakers and events dealing with issues of moral and political concern, as well as the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Commemoration and Service, the Holocaust Lecture Series and stories of personal faith journey through Sojourner’s Quest.
