Multi-Belief Space

Why does Northwestern need a Multi-Belief Space?

Northwestern University needs a Multi-Belief Space to accommodate the ever-increasing needs of our students to have a dedicated, neutral space within our Religious Center for religious ritual, communal prayer, or contemplation. 

Why is a Multi-Belief Space important?

The importance of creating this space provides support to our entire community but is especially important for those who may not have their own actual physical space, i.e. Buddhists, Sikhs, Muslims, Native Americans, Mindfulness Initiatives, etc.  The presence of a Multi-Belief Space at Northwestern also encourages the rapport, development of relationships, and dialogue between belief systems which may not happen in other places on our campus.  

The design of this space is being planned by a task force of students, staff, faculty, and advisors to meet the needs of all groups.  It will be an open and welcome space for all and our team is excited to make it a reality with your help.  

How can you help?

  • Donate!  Every gift will go a long way towards creating this Multi-Belief space.
  • Consider making a gift of $20.17 in honor of this year's graduating class. 
  • Share this with friends and family on social media or by e-mail.

Your contribution to this project is important in providing resources for underserved communities on our campus.  Ultimately, your donation will make Northwestern a more diverse and welcoming community. 

Thanks so much for your support—we couldn’t do this without you!
