Faith & Spirituality

Dedicated in 2010, the award-winning Ronald K. and Kati C. Machtley Interfaith Center is home to Bryant’s campus ministry and provides a gathering place where all members of the Bryant community can explore their spirituality, practice their faith, and learn from one another.

A variety of programs are offered to challenge students to develop as a whole person. The chaplains who serve the Bryant community are eager to inform you of spiritual and social events available to all members of the University family. The campus chaplains are also available to participate in programs and discussions sponsored by faculty, resident assistants, campus groups/clubs, and individual students.

Campus Ministry works together to serve you and offers a number of Interfaith/Ecumenical celebrations throughout the year, including: Parents and Family Weekend services, the annual Festival of Lights each December, and Baccalaureate Services during Commencement weekend.
