Interfaith Living and Learning Community

About the Living and Learning Community

The Interfaith Floor is for all students seeking to learn more about the diversity of religious, spiritual, and ethical practices observed both on campus and throughout the world. Residents of the Interfaith Floor meet weekly over dinner to increase their religious literacy, share their own spiritual autobiographies, and examine the diversity of symbols, rituals, and themes that have given shape to religious life over the millennia up to the modern day. All students are encouraged to apply, whether they practice a particular religion, are spiritual but not religious, or identify as seeking, agnostic, or atheist.

The Interfaith Floor is a place for students who want to examine their own values, explore the values of their floormates with curiosity and respect, seek meaning and purpose, and prepare to be well informed global leaders.

Residency Expectations

Members of the community are expected to make a commitment to living together in a diverse inter-faith community. Expectations of residency include:

  • Required attendance at the weekly community dinner meetings throughout the term held on Sunday nights from 6:00 -7:00 p.m.
  • Attendance at least one alternative worship service followed by the preparation of a reflection paper and discussion with floormates based on said experience.
