College & University Campus Ministry

Unitarian Universalists (UUs) know our actively inclusive faith speaks to the needs and questions of many college and university students. So UUs across many campuses are finding ways to connect and make a spiritual home-base with one another. And if you need help connecting and starting, the UUA can support and accompany you!

Campus Ministry Is Good for Everyone

Students who were raised UU and miss their home faith communities need us. Students who have never heard of Unitarian Universalism and are striving to make meaning of our world need us. Higher education, which is increasingly aware of the positive benefits of interfaith work and spiritual involvement on campuses, also desperately needs us. And we UUs need the energy and ideas of students in our movement.

... so plug on in!

Connect to a network of bridging youth & emerging adults; on Facebook, join a group for UU emerging adults, the larger group for all UU Young Adults (18-35), or a group for UU campus ministry leaders. Read our blog Blue Boat, or connect via Twitter. Connect to Emerging Adult Ministry Associate, Rev. Stevie Carmody, for more support and accompaniment!
