ORSL Staff

Meet the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life

Please note that ORSL is mostly virtual during spring quarter. Chaplain Liz will be in the office on Friday mornings for in-person needs.

Interfaith Leadership Team

For the 2021-22 school year, the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is being headed by a team of 5 interns and 11 Interfaith Student Leaders (ISLs). These students come from a variety of religious traditions, spiritual leanings, and secular perspectives. Interfaith Student Leaders are essential to religious and spiritual life. They develop weekly Community Reflection topics, lead retreats, host events, and much much more. To become an Interfaith Student Leader, make an appointment to meet with the Chaplain. Applications are accepted during spring quarter.

Meet the Chaplain!
