Qu(e)erying Religion - An intimate and open space for joyful, supported, life-giving queer spiritualities. QR programs foster dynamic encounters, (un)common conversations, and creative engagements at the intersections of gender identities, sexual orientations, cultures, religious faiths, and spiritual practices. You can donate to this program by choosing the Fund for Gender, Sexuality and Faith.
Grief Support Sharing Circles - An informal, drop-in mutual support group for students who have experienced a death, as well as students experiencing anticipatory grief.
Ecology and Spirituality - An exploration of the ways in which faith, religions and spiritualities interact with the world around us.
We also support students with one-on-one pastoral care and connect students to worship, prayer and communities of faith, justice and learning on campus.
