Roger Williams University is a respectful community that embraces difference. Spiritual Life acts as a mechanism that connects our community on another level. The University has formed relationships with Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Islamic Chaplains.
This group has worked to provide individual as well as programmatic support to the RWU community. Through an interfaith model, the University Chaplains work with faculty, students and staff to design programs responsive to the community needs. In addition to on-campus support, many local churches, synagogues and mosques have warmly embraced attendants from our University.
As the Spiritual Life Program continues to grow and meet the needs of our community, the mission of the program supports the Core Values of this University.
The Program seeks to teach our community about various world religions and challenge each individual to discover truth.
Developing one's whole self prepares an individual for the future. The Program encourages individuals to study faith, ethics and values in determining an appropriate vocation.
The various faith-based groups involved in the Program, as well as the Program itself, encourage volunteerism and charity.
The Program seeks to create opportunities to engage in dialog and understanding among people from different religions. It promotes a safe, open and understanding community where people can share their own beliefs and learn about other beliefs.
