Religious Organizations

The MIT Office of Religious, Spiritual, and Ethical Life (ORSEL) supports about thirty active student religious, spiritual, interfaith, and Humanist organizations on campus, many of which are advised by one of over twenty ORSEL-affiliated professionals. Affiliate chaplains also provide confidential one-on-one counseling and offer programs to promote spiritual wellbeing, interfaith understanding, and ethical growth for all students.

Religious, spiritual, moral, and ethical convictions are important personal identity markers, and the Institute encourages the MIT community to thoughtfully engage with today's pluralistic world. The Office of Religious, Spiritual, and Ethical Life is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment and adheres to the Institute's nondiscrimination policy.
