At UE, we think college is about more than what happens in the classroom. It's about what happens inside of you as you figure out who you are, what you are capable of, and what you are meant to do in the world. We are committed to offering you a variety of opportunities that will help you explore these questions as they relate to your faith tradition.
If you have no faith tradition, you are invited to learn about religion and spirituality through special events, informal conversation, religion courses, and small groups which meet on campus throughout the academic year.
Our emphasis on global education and civic engagement challenges our students, our faculty, and our staff to reflect on their responsibilities for the common good. In an era of religious intolerance and misunderstanding, higher education must responsibly address the issues of faith, meaning, and culture.
"The emerging adult years often entail repeated life disruptions, transitions, and distractions…religious faith, community involvement, and personal practices all are sorted out one way or another in this larger process of struggling to balance differentiation, consolidations, and integration of relations, identities, goals, and resources."
