Emerson's interfaith efforts promote an ongoing dialogue about religion and spirituality.
Spiritual Life at Emerson College is inclusive, intellectually stimulating, and civically engaged with the Emerson and surrounding Boston area communities.
We encourage people of all faiths, as well as secularists, humanists, and atheists, to take part in the activities of the Jewish group Hillel, the Catholic Newman Club, and the interdenominational Christian group Emerson Christian Fellowship (formerly EGNF). Members of the spiritual life community at Emerson also work together in social action projects (e.g., cooking and serving shelter meals).
Together, these interfaith efforts promote an ongoing dialogue about religion, spirituality, and ethics with the guidance of a Hillel advisor, a Catholic minister, and a Protestant chaplain. Spiritual Life advisors work to:
- Emphasize and advance the role of spirituality within the context of higher education and student/communal life at the College.
- Foster a sense of community on campus.
- Advocate for the needs of underrepresented groups.
