The Department of Spiritual and Religious Life (SRL) seeks to empower individuals to identify, explore, and critically reflect upon the ways they, and others, make meaning of their life and the world. Students, staff, and faculty members are encouraged to recognize and strengthen their own personal spiritual resources to sustain their lives and communities and create a more just world.
SRL helps nurture spiritual and religious life at Mills through regular programming, annual events, supporting student leaders, and faith-based student groups, connecting with community-based faith organizations, offering pastoral care, facilitating small group conversations, and providing ritual functions. A labyrinth is located on the gravel courtyard between the Chapel and the Littlefield Concert Hall and is available for walking as a way to quiet the mind, find balance and healing, and encourage prayer, meditation, insight, community, and celebration.
