Are there religious services on campus?
Yes, the Center for Religious Life provides worship and observances within diverse religious and cultural traditions at RIT. Several religious clubs also gather each week throughout the campus. Nondenominational Christian, Southern Baptist, Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Lutheran and Orthodox Christian are among the many communities serving campus needs and interests. In a time of intellectual and spiritual growth, the center establishes an affirming environment for students, faculty and staff to explore and discuss values informed by religious beliefs.
RIT’s Interfaith Center, a gift of Kilian and Caroline Schmitt and other generous donors, is a focal point for the diverse religious traditions within the university, housing two chapels, meetings rooms and offices for the campus ministry staff.
For more information, contact the coordinator of the Interfaith Center at (585) 475-2135 (voice/TTY) or by e-mail.
