Want to explore big questions, learn more about others’ religions, or connect with your own faith community? The Center for Service, Spirituality and Social Justice (CSSS) at Dickinson College provides support for students coming from all backgrounds. The center has three main objectives, in regards to Religious Life:
Create opportunities for exploring meaning and purpose
CSSS aims to give all students, whether or not they are religious, an opportunity to explore life’s bigger questions. The center provides programming for meaningful discussion about existential, moral, spiritual, and other topics. The center also provides meditative opportunities, which allow participants to more fully explore themselves. Learn more about the center’s meaning-making opportunities.
Encourage interfaith cooperation and understanding
Understanding other religious traditions is essential to a supportive campus experience. CSSS aims to increase religious literacy on campus and to promote cooperation between students from various backgrounds. Learn more about interfaith opportunities at Dickinson.
Support students from all religious backgrounds
Students at Dickinson College come from many religious backgrounds. CSSS works hard to help each student find his or her own religious community and to accommodate his or her religious needs. The center works both with individuals and with student faith-based organizations. Learn more about how we help students and student organizations.
The Center for Service, Spirituality and Social Justice plays an active role on campus to achieve these three goals. The center hopes that you will join us for programs and take advantage of our resources.
