Spiritual Life

Religious and Spiritual Life

The University of New England understands that for many members of its community, spirituality is very important. UNE is committed to creating an environment responsive to expression and exploration of spiritual needs in the campus community.

Spirituality is unique to each individual and can mean different things to different people. Spirituality may include: religious faith, affiliation with a particular religious group or community, values, beliefs, ethics, morals and principles.  It can mean a connection with a higher power, or it may develop from nurturing relationships with others, a connection to nature, or other specific practices or rituals that bring inner peace and well being.

Spiritual wellness is making meaning of those things in life that are most important to you and may involve any of the following:

  • Developing a purpose in life
  • Alone time through prayer, reflection or meditation
  • Living your life by a moral compass or a clear sense of what is right and wrong
  • Individual and global compassion for self and others

The UNE Office of Multicultural Affairs & Diversity assists the Division of Student Affairs in helping connect students with on and off-campus opportunities and programs that explore spiritual well being.  We can assist students in connecting with local places of worship and times of services.  Multi-faith events are also held periodically on campus.
