All of our religious groups participate in interfaith engagement - whether through co-sponsored programs, travel, service, or our Big Days initiative.

Heretics Club

Colgate’s “Heretics Club” lunch discussion series was created to elevate the conversation on campus about life’s “big questions.” Through lectures and conversations with a very diverse group of faculty, staff, and students, we demonstrate that people of different religious convictions and worldviews can have meaningful and productive conversations about ultimate ideas.

Interfaith House

Founded in 2013, 110 Broad Street houses approximately 40 residents from a multitude of religious backgrounds who live and work together to provide the Colgate community with educational, philanthropic, and social programming.


From Istanbul to Italy, the Office of the Chaplains offers students opportunities to explore, experience and reflect on the world together.
