Spirituality Development Month
November is here, and with it comes our annual showcase of spiritual, religious, and interfaith life at Carnegie Mellon! The Office of Residential Education, in conjunction with the Council of Religious Advisors and our faith-based student is pleased to invite you to join us for Spirituality Development Month.
Throughout the month of November, we will be hosting a number of programs and events with the following objectives:
- Celebrating the religious diversity on our campus
- Increasing the religious literacy of our students, faculty, and staff
- Encouraging dialogue between individuals of different (or no) religious or spiritual backgrounds
You can find a full list of events on the Spirituality and Interfaith Initiatives website, and we will also be posting regular updates with additional opportunities to the Spirituality Development Month Facebook event. The following events are particularly notable and should not be missed!
State of the University- A monthly event hosted by the Community Advisors. State of the University is a platform to bring together individuals from across campus to discuss current issues facing our community. November’s event is titled “#blessed: faith and reason in today’s society.” (November 17, 4:30-6:30PM in Doherty Hall A302)
Interfaith Thanksgiving- The Muslim Student Association, Jewish Student Association, and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship invite you to join them for dinner and discussion.

AMA (Ask Me Anything) Day- On November 30, individuals across campus will wear “AMA” buttons to encourage others to ask them their burning questions about faith, religion, and spirituality. Buttons will be distributed throughout the month of November. For more information, visit the AMA Day Facebook Event.
