TCU’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life supports students’ pursuit of spiritual growth, faith development and religious practice while fostering a campus atmosphere in which all members of the TCU community may fully express their beliefs, values, and traditions.
Through our office, students can connect to opportunities that will enrich their faith, spirituality, and beliefs. Whether this is connecting to one of our 22 student religious organizations, finding a local spiritual or faith community, or participating in one of the events sponsored by the office, TCU students have a plethora of avenues to seek deeper understandings of meaning and purpose.
The mission of Religious and Spiritual Life is to care for the lives of students and the university community through supporting the pursuit of spiritual growth, faith development and religious practice while fostering a campus atmosphere in which members may freely and fully express their beliefs and values.
We do this through:
- Advising student religious organizations, student leaders and affiliated staff;
- Offering pastoral and spiritual care in times of celebration, loss and transition;
- Providing worship and resources to mark special times in the academic and religious calendars;
- Offering programs, support and resources for the exploration of faith, spirituality, values & religion.
Religious and Spiritual Life’s values are built upon the already existing values of the university, division of student affairs and TCU’s denominational partner, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). These values include:
- Radical Hospitality and Acceptance
- Life-Giving Relationships and Community
- Thoughtful Reflection and Self-Awareness
