Religious Organizations

Student-led organizations are at the heart of spiritual and religious life on campus.

In support of the different student groups, the college's Religious Life Council, chaired by the College Chaplain, meets monthly and provides a forum for students, faculty, staff, and area clergy members to plan religious activities and discuss the spiritual needs of the campus community. Student groups also work with local religious advisors to coordinate on and off-campus programming.

Contact College Chaplain Rob Spach (704-894-2423) for more information about the groups' meeting times and locations.
