The Center for Religious and Spiritual Life (RSL) helps students to live their faith, explore spiritual practices, and make meaning within themselves and the world. We strive to meet each student where they are—whether continuing within a religious or humanist tradition, seeking among them, or exploring outside of them. We work to support personal wholeness, interfaith understanding, and collective wellbeing.

 RSL Priorities

  1. RSL serves and supports the religious, spiritual, and value-based lives of the Amherst community.
  2. RSL works to cultivate understanding and appreciation across diversities of belief and identity, and mobilizes these connections toward bettering our world.
  3. RSL achieves its aims by being visible, relevant, and integrated into the Amherst community.

For detailed programming info, please refer to our RSL calendar.
