Carnegie Mellon University

Council of Religious Advisors

The Carnegie Mellon Council of Religious Advisors (CoRA) supports and encourages religious life within the campus community. Members of the Council provide a variety of services, including counseling, educational programs, conferences, worship, discussion groups, social events, and religious instruction. Council members work from their own traditions while also collaborating on Interfaith programs. 

The university acknowledges the staff members of those ministries who are commissioned by their particular faith group to work within the campus community at Carnegie Mellon. Each chaplaincy has its own mission, objective, and schedules, which are available through the individual faith groups. 

Not all faiths on campus are currently represented through membership in CoRA. We are always looking to bring greater representation to CoRA. If you are a leader in a local faith community who serves the Carnegie Mellon community, and you are interested in learning more about CoRA, please contact jonny@cmu.edu

If you don't find your faith represented in CoRA, we are happy to help you get in touch with the appropriate student organizations, places of worship, and resources within the local community. Please contact mandyb@andrew.cmu.edu or jonny@cmu.edu for more information.
