The Newlin Quaker Center aims to identify and prepare young Quaker leaders, nurture Quaker scholarship and dialogue on campus, and provide members of the Earlham and wider communities with information about the Religious Society of Friends and Earlham's living Quaker character. More broadly, the Center aims to promote conversation and cooperation among Friends, and to provide a gathering place for Friends of all sorts.
The Newlin Quaker Center is housed in Virginia Cottage, also the home of the Office of Religious Life, located on a beautiful and tranquil corner of campus — a perfect spot for reflection and spiritual renewal.
The Quaker Fellows Scholarship Program is a vital part of the work of the Newlin Quaker Center. The program emphasizes leadership growth, community development and spiritual experiences. You can learn more about the program or application process here.
Additionally, the Newlin Quaker Center offers programming throughout the year related to Principles and Practices, consensus-based decision-making and the Religious Society of Friends.
