Signature Programs

Religious & Spiritual Life present annual programs including but not limited to: Concerts, 40 Days of Spirituality, and Baccalaureate that celebrate the religious and spiritual diversity of Northwestern.



Our concerts give the community the opportunity to join us for glorious music-making in the resplendent beauty of Alice Millar Chapel. Our concerts are annual events that include rousing hymns to soaring motets, this is music to enrapture the ear and to enliven the soul.

40 Days of Spirituality

Winter Quarter

40 Days is our annual series of programs and opportunities designed to create an intentional time and space to renew, reflect, and become more aware of one's self and those around them.  Inspired by practices of many spiritual traditions to set aside a portion of the year for reflection, this program invites all of any or no particular spiritual tradition to be nourished by these events.


Spring Quarter

The Office of the President and Religious & Spiritual Life invites graduates, their families, and guests to attend Baccalaureate, an interfaith service incorporating the many traditions of the University.
