Religion & Spirituality

This identity/allyship rope team has been designed to support the development and success of students and alums from different faiths, religious traditions, and spiritual journeys and to engage alums, faculty, staff, and other community members from diverse faith and spiritual backgrounds in facilitating connections, opportunities, resources and experiences for these students/alums. This is a safe space for participants to share and learn from others’ stories and voices. We call them “rope teams” because these communities, as many as you are interested in accessing, are here to support your student and alum journey as well as to provide you with an opportunity to support the journey of those you want to help succeed.
