The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is housed in Whitman’s Intercultural Center and seeks to support students who wish to deepen or explore spirituality during their time at college.
We are a resource for established religious groups on campus and are happy to work with students from under-represented religious traditions who may be looking to form community, and we provide programming which explores the important relationship between faith and learning – that connection between mind and spirit.
The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life serves people of all faith traditions, as well as those who are exploring spirituality but who do not identify with any particular religious tradition. We are committed to not only to supporting religious expression, but fostering interaction and dialogue between different religious traditions.
Rev. Adam Kirtley is available for confidential pastoral counseling and support to individuals regarding any number of concerns which may include spiritual growth, values, personal crisis, relationship concerns, or grief. The office welcomes the opportunity to be of support to individuals whose concerns may arise from issues of ethnicity, religious faith, sexual orientation, social class, gender, race, or family history.
In some cases, care might best be provided by the Counseling Center, in which case a referral will be made.
