Office of Religious & Spiritual Life
The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life supports all of the traditions and spiritual perspectives represented in the Wellesley community.
It offers all students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the world's religious and spiritual traditions and gain skills in interreligious dialogue and spiritual growth.
The religious life team includes a Buddhist advisor, a Hindu advisor, a Hillel director and associate director, a Muslim chaplain, a director of Newman Catholic Ministry, a Protestant Christian chaplain, a liaison to the Evangelical Christian community, and a Unitarian Universalist chaplain. The program also includes advisors and student groups for the Baha’i, Jain, Native African, Native American, Pagan, Sikh, and Zoroastrian communities, to name just a few. Chaplains and advisors are available for religious and pastoral counseling.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to take part in one or more of these faith communities for worship, meditation, practice, and discussion on a weekly basis as well as for educational and social activities throughout the academic year. In addition, the Dean of Religious & Spiritual Life coordinates a program that examines the role of spirituality in the educational process at Wellesley and officiates at multifaith community worship.
