Unitarian Universalists (UUs) value higher education and know our active inclusive faith speaks to the needs and questions of many college and university students. Supporting students means meeting them right where they are: on campus. So we have UU ministries at 60 campuses across the United States doing interfaith work, leading worship and small group discussions, sharing meals and hosting campus-wide events.
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.
We Celebrate Our Differences
Unitarian Universalist students are diverse! We work to end racism and oppression in our society and to make our communities inclusive for folks of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities and abilities. UUs come from many cultures and class backgrounds, and we bring many spiritual practices and beliefs to our communities.
