Spiritual Life & Outreach Programs
The Office of Spiritual Life & Outreach Programs facilitates and supports student growth and development in a variety of ways, most notably through focusing on community service, multicultural affairs, spiritual explorations, religious celebrations, pastoral counseling, general mentoring, and commuter activities. The Office of Spiritual Life & Outreach Programs and all the programs offered through it are open to people of all religious or spiritual backgrounds and to those of no religious tradition.
Community service is a popular undertaking at Fisher College. Activities range from serving meals at local soup kitchens, to joining in neighborhood cleanups, to participating in Habitat for Humanity builds over Spring Break, among other endeavors. If you would like to help plan activities or discuss the issues, you might want to join the Common Good, our community service club.
Programs and events designed to celebrate and increase understanding of the different cultures at Fisher College and around the world are offered throughout the year, such as our Multicultural Festival, the Oxfam Hunger Banquet, Peace Games, and open mic performances. If you are interested in helping to organize these activities, you might want to consider joining the Multicultural Club.
College can be a time of intense spiritual, religious, ethical, and existential questions and struggles. The Director of Spiritual Life & Outreach Programs is there for discussion and guidance on these and other issues, e.g., adjusting to the USA as an international student, diversity concerns, or general coaching and mentoring.
Spiritual Exploration workshops and retreats aim to help students access the spiritual dimensions of their selves. Moreover, the Director can help students to locate places of worship in the Boston area that pertain to their own religious background.
The Director is Dr. Ann Clarke Ph.D., M.Div. She can be reached at (617) 670-4424, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
