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 our Center for Spiritual Life (CSL). Established groups include the Jewish group Hillel, the Catholic Newman Club, and the interdenominational Emerson Christian Fellowship (formerly EGNF), with groups and events also emerging around mindfulness meditation, Buddhism, interfaith dialogue, and social justice.
Our Center for Spiritual Life staff - a Hillel advisor, a Catholic minister, and a Protestant chaplain - under the direction of CSL Director and Buddhist teacher Harrison Blum, 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.
