Spiritual Life

Working to facilitate spiritual development and meet the spiritual needs of students.

Evolution and Expansion!
As of Fall 2021 Spiritual Life has moved from the Office of Organizational Culture, Inclusion and Equity (OCIE) to join the Student Experience units within the Division of Student Affairs, under the oversight of the Multicultural Center. All Student experience offices are located in the Management and Academic Building. The Spiritual Life Office is located on the second floor office C-230E.

Spiritual Life at Simmons

We coordinate activities to promote development and leadership skills in Simmons students, and we encourage their spiritual development. We help students connect to the larger community of their neighborhoods in the city by organizing opportunities for students to serve people in need through community service. We support students on an individual basis by providing referrals to local houses of worship and offering spiritual directing. Spiritual Life at Simmons is an opportunity for inter-faith, inter-cultural programming, and dialogue for the entire Simmons community.

Schedule an appointment with any of our staff members. The Spiritual Life staff can be reached via email at [email protected].

The Colleges of the Fenway also offer a variety of religious opportunities.
