Spiritual DevelopmentCarnegie Mellon University has a strong commitment to providing opportunities for students to explore their own spiritual development and moral fabric. Some of the available programs include the Big Questions series for first year students, Spiritual Development Month, Faith 101, and the Digging Deeper series. Additionally, Interfaith Explorers is an organization which brings together students of diverse faith backgrounds to ask, reflect upon, and answer questions-of-meaning. There are many religiously-based student organizations available, as well as the opportunity to establish new ones. Lastly, we support students' desire to connect with local houses of worship and can be of assistance in locating them.
