The Office of Spiritual Life seeks to nurture the ethics and identities of the Knox community by expanding our connection to our community and our world. As more people identify as spiritual or non-religious, the office strives to help students navigate and define their own experiences, whether those be a religious, humanist, atheist, or something beyond or in between.  

In addition, religious literacy remains valuable in a world where we must strive to respect and understand our increasingly diverse neighbors. The Office of Spiritual Life carries the tradition of the liberal arts by teaching students to communicate with people from all walks of life.

Dialogue is a central tenet of spiritual life at Knox. Through religious and political dialogues, the Knox community can move towards understanding and allyship. Cultural programming such as Interfaith Amigos—which brought an Imam, a Rabbi, and a Christian minister to campus—helps open the door to a community that serves together and celebrates together. Spiritual Life is part of the Division of Student Development.

Students are integral to programming in the Office of Spiritual Life. Active religious student organizations include:

The Office of Spiritual Life helps students take time to learn about each other so that they can learn more about themselves and how they can exist together in this dynamic world.
