For more than 30 years, the University’s Spiritual Life Institute institute, held during the summer, has explored topics to cultivate religious literacy, challenge pre-conceived notions and shed light upon the spiritual journey. Religious Studies students have the opportunity to participate in these week-long discussions with internationally recognized groups of scholars.
