Spiritual and Religious Resources for Students
Trent University Spiritual Affairs provides support to students from all faith traditions, as well as students who are considering questions of meaning, purpose and identity. University life provides ample opportunity for personal growth and exploration - and at times, can be stressful. Our Spiritual Care Providers and Community Liaisons are available to provide spiritual support to students as they navigate this complex and exciting life stage. Our multi-faith model is rooted in respect, understanding, and inclusion.
Spiritual Affairs is responsible for:
Coordinating the Multi-Faith Network - spiritual support for students of any faith or no faith
Events and programming on themes of spirituality, identity, and equity
Advice on religious accommodation for academic requirements
Maintenance of the Multi-Faith Room on campus - a space for reflection, prayer or quiet contemplation
Supporting dialogue across religious diversity in the campus community
Liaising with faith-based clubs on campus, and supporting the development of new clubs
Liaising with local churches and faith communities
Referrals to other campus supports as needed
At Spiritual Affairs, we are faith-positive, but we don't endorse any particular faith. We encourage openness, inquiry, and spiritual growth. We do not support aggressive religious recruitment, and welcome you to reach out if you have had negative experiences of this kind on the Trent Campus. Questions or comments can be directed to Johanna Hart, Coordinator of Spiritual Affairs at Trent.
