Chaplains & Religious Life

Religious life at Brown is wide-ranging and accommodating for students of all faiths.

The multi-faith chaplaincy on campus works diligently to ensure that all beliefs can find a home on campus. Manning ChapelHillel House, and the Brown Muslim Student Association represent some of the more established centers for religious services at Brown. In addition, there are frequent meetings of fellowship and spirituality groups throughout the campus. Chaplains are available by appointment as well.

To promote communication and understanding among all religious groups, the Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life sponsors a number of interfaith initiatives: 

The Interfaith Supper is a weekly gathering held in the home of the university chaplain. For more than 30 years Thursday Supper has been a place for delicious food, inspiring speakers, and invigorating conversation. 

The Multi-Faith Council is comprised of student leaders from all of the religious and faith communities on campus. The Council meets regularly to explore ways to deepen one another's understanding of different traditions as well as creating educational opportunities for the wider University community. 

The Interfaith Program House is an interfaith residential space intended to foster discussion, understanding, inter-religious dialogue, and respect for people of faith and those without a religious background. It was established by students during the 2003-2004 academic year. 

The Brown community is also invited to use the Meditation Room.
