USM hosts 14 different interfaith chaplains and spiritual advisors from a variety of different religious traditions (Baha'i, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, and more). Bring your lunch, and enjoy conversation and dialogue with representatives of this Religious and Spiritual Life Council, each Wednesday from 11:30am to 1:30pm in the Woodbury Campus Center Cafeteria.
USM Religious & Spiritual Life (formerly Interfaith Chaplaincy) provides support for all members of the university community in religious and spiritual development as well as interfaith respect, appreciation, and cooperation.
Our work is guided by these goals for student learning as a result of participating in our programs:
Students will learn
to clarify their own beliefs and values;
to connect their beliefs and values to their choices and actions; and
to understand and relate respectfully to those whose beliefs and values are different from their own.
