Religious Life


Earlham is a crossroads college. We are a meeting place for different religious beliefs and practices that is constituted by four overlapping communities:

  • A Quaker Community
  • A Multi-Faith Community
  • A Rational Community
  • A Community of Dialogue

Students come to the Office of Religious Life for support in differing ways: Some come seeking a deeper connection with their faith traditions, others seek to explore alternative spiritual paths, and still others need assistance discerning the inner foundations of their outward commitments.

The Office of Religious Life supports and encourages students by providing guidance in contemplative inquiry, opportunities for dialogue, sponsoring celebratory communal events, and supporting opportunities that enable students to put their most cherished beliefs into daily practice.
