As a multi-faith learning community, the Center for Spiritual and Ethical Development (CSED) is charged with providing programs and a venue for the religious, spiritual, ethical and character development of the University community. CSED strives to build active, responsible citizens and raise the consciousness of the community. With a broad offering of worship opportunities, educational events, and cross-cultural programs that enrich the heart and mind, CSED hosts a culturally diverse multi-faith community and celebrates our differences and similarities in a safe, supportive environment.
The vision of CSED embraces these fundamental premises:
- To provide the University community with a safe, supportive space for religious/spiritual/cultural diversity and exploration.
- To encourage personal, ethical and character development, intellectual engagement, and the voluntary exercise of religious/spiritual beliefs.
- To promote inter-faith understanding and appreciation through educational and cultural programming and activities.
