Religious and Spiritual Life

Empowering and Caring for the Next Generation

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (ORSL) fosters a community of belonging, learning and life formation at Babson and beyond. We empower students to cultivate and explore their religious and spiritual identities, while simultaneously sustaining their faith traditions.

Understanding the unique culture at Babson, we believe that a deep sense of self, a commitment to social responsibility, and interfaith and intercultural exchanges are imperative to students’ success and spiritual well-being. Therefore we offer several weekly programs, connect with students one on one and partner with other offices to provide a well-rounded student experience.

ORSL thrives by meeting students wherever they are in their spiritual journeys and religious beliefs and encourages them to explore life’s big questions. We also provide Chaplain care and support, and partner with several offices and departments to assist students to take advantage of religious meal plan accommodations.

A society that is indifferent to its moral and spiritual life is indifferent to its future.”
