Mission Statement
The Five College Council on Religious Life fosters collaboration among the member schools in the areas of religious learning and practice, spiritual development, and moral inquiry.

This collaboration has included joint opportunities for religious advisors and chaplains' professional development, shared personnel, mutual support, and consultation among chaplains and religious advisors.
