Northwestern is privileged to enjoy a rich and diverse religious life, which supports and challenges the intellectual pursuits of the University. We invite you to explore the rich and varied options available to Northwestern students.

It is our hope that together we can build a community of conscience and spiritual awareness and support the University's search for and celebration of "whatsoever things are true."
