The Center for Religious Life is more than a campus facility or building. It is a place – and a space – for quiet prayer and community laughter, meditation, pizza dinners, choral concerts or students playing guitars, or just hanging out to play the pianos in the chapels. It is a place of personal and community exploration within the diverse and rich religious, cultural, and spiritual traditions of our campus community.
The Q Center is committed to promoting a campus community that is safe, equitable, and respectful of all members. The purpose of the Q Center is to foster an educational environment in which all community members can be personally, academically, and professionally successful without regard to gender, racial/ethnic origins, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and socioeconomic status.
