Office for Spiritual Engagement

At Hobart and William Smith, we believe that the life of the spirit and the life of the mind need not be separate or mutually exclusive, but in fact may be profoundly interrelated and rewarding.

The Office for Spiritual Engagement works to promote engagement with that interrelationship through services, programming and spiritual support that provide hospitality and advocacy for students of all religions and cultures.

Through Spiritual Engagement events, you can meet like-minded students during a knitting circle, offer up a prayer and light a candle or join the Chaplain and your friends for a delicious dinner at Pasta Night.

St. John’s Chapel hosts services for Catholics, Episcopalians, Quakers and Buddhists. The local community is also home to a variety of religious services, including Baha'i, Baptist, Jewish, Unitarian, Methodist and Presbyterian.
