Multifaith Student Council

As part of an ongoing initiative to cultivate conversations across lines of religious difference, the University of Richmond formed the Multifaith Student Council in the fall of 2011. The group is sponsored by the Office of the Chaplaincy and is designed and led by students. It is a grassroots effort to bring to the forefront of campus life the most inspiring and challenging issues that students face at the intersection of faith and society.

The Multifaith Student Council is made up of participants from the Pilgrimage travel intensives and other interested students.  

The council works to create:

  • Educational programming around world faith traditions
  • Interactive discussions addressing current topics
  • Fellowship opportunities for the wider campus community
  • Outreach initiatives in the greater Richmond community

Join us every Tuesday night from 6-7 p.m. in the Wilton Center Pathways Lounge for our weekly Multifaith Dinner and Discussion.

Multifaith Dinner and Discussion is a weekly gathering designed for students of all faiths, and those of no faith tradition, to come together for food and discussion. Each dinner will explore current topics and headlines and how our religious traditions inform our understanding of the world around us.  All faith traditions are welcome.
