Multi-Faith Resource Team

Multi-Faith Resource Team

Want to talk with someone?  Need a listening ear?  Student support is offered by all members of the Multi-Faith Resource Team (MFRT) and is available to all undergraduate and graduate students. The MFRT works collaboratively, and within their own faith traditions, to explore questions of meaning, purpose, belonging and identity. If you are looking to enrich your spiritual life or are seeking pastoral care of any kind, we are here to listen, encourage you and support you.  No matter your faith background, even if you don't identify with any particular faith tradition, you are more than welcome to stop in and chat with a member of the MFRT.  All are welcome. 

As a diverse team, we all affirm the dignity and worth of every individual, regardless of ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression and identity. Together, we work to create positive spaces where all are afforded equal opportunity to thrive.
