Faith and Spirituality

Multi-Faith Programs support the well-being of all students by recognizing the contributions of faith and spirituality.

  • You can find Community and Belonging here at U of G. We recognize, celebrate, and support the diverse religious, spiritual and worldview identities present on campus.
  • We are a campus that practices Religious Pluralism. As global citizens we nurture opportunities for religious literacy education and multi-faith dialogue as we “learn to feel enlarged, not threatened, by difference.” - Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
  • You can bring your whole self to U of G. We affirm and support spiritual well-being, meaning-making, and moral reflection as essential to holistic well-being and to developing the person, scholar, and citizen.
