Spiritual and Religious Life

The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life works with students to cultivate a culture of mutual respect for the variety of faith traditions on campus, in partnership with the Office for Institutional Equity and Inclusive Culture, the Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of Student Life, as well as university and community chaplains.

We encourage all students at Drexel University to take advantage of the spectrum of resources available both on and off campus to support their spiritual development and identity. Spiritual and Religious Life strives to provide sacred, educational, and fellowship spaces, and to foster inclusive and interfaith experiences led by professional staff, and campus and community chaplains.

Currently, the majority of spiritual and religious institutional support is provided by Baptist Campus Ministry, Hillel at Drexel, Newman Catholic Campus Ministry, and Open Door Christian Community. For more information, contact the Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion

Below are just a few of the ways we strive to support your spiritual identity:
