We believe that at the foundation of all religious life is community – the connection between individuals and the growth that comes from experiencing and sharing faith together.
RSL provides advising, support & resources for over 20 diverse student religious organizations on campus that serve over 1950 students from across faith traditions, denominations and backgrounds. Groups may be centered around a shared tradition such as the Catholic Community or Muslim Student Association, connected to a national organization, such as Campus Crusade for Christ or Young Life, or focused on a special interest or projects such as music, dance, mission work or special events. Each group provides their own unique way for opportunities of worship, study, service and/or learning.
RSL provides support, advising, leadership development and general oversight for all TCU student religious organizations, leaders and staff while also addressing the changing need for new religious communities and places of expression. We gather organization leaders together through the Student Leadership Council each month and connect organizations to experts and resources through the Religious Advisory Council.
All students are invited to join any of these communities or connect with RSL staff to find a faith community off-campus or begin a new one.
RSL Interfaith Initiatives
RSL invites people from all spiritual perspectives and religious traditions to work together around a common cause that helps others in need. While we represent various faith traditions at TCU, our hope is that by uniting around a common purpose we can promote campus-wide understanding and respect of diverse spiritual beliefs by means of communication, dialogue, education, and advocacy and serve our community. Simply put, we’re about building relationships, actively learning, and engaging in opportunities for service. All are welcome. All are accepted. No exceptions.
