Our Mission

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life invites you to find belonging in one of many student groups and campus partners, make meaning out of the human experience, and join with people of religious, spiritual, or secular worldviews to make a difference in Ithaca and the world. Come see how we're turning our core objectives into a reality at IC, and how our values as an institution are being lived out through the tangible action our community is taking. 

I have had the honor of listening to students, faculty, and staff share their stories and their hopes. Such listening is a core component of my vision for the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life: to create opportunities for the IC community to make meaning, find belonging, engage in dialogue, and collaborate across commitments for action.

Hierald Osorto, MDiv., Director of Religious & Spiritual Life

The world I want to co-create looks just and boundless. People are able to believe, live and love as they wish as long as they cause no harm to themselves or others.
