The Council for Faith and Spirituality, formally known as Campus Ministry, is an umbrella organization that includes all spiritual and religious student organizations and campus ministries.  The Council meets monthly during the academic year.  Campus Ministers, Religious Leaders and students support each other by learning from and listening to each other.  The Council discourages proselytizing but rather affirms and encourages activities and events that support all religious traditions.  The council is chaired by Esmilda Abreu-Hornbostel, Director of Equity and Diversity.
