Religious / Spiritual Organizations
and Other Resources
The religious and spiritual needs of the students at UMass Amherst are served by a wide variety of Registered Student Organizations (RSO's) and private religious organizations.
RSO's are chartered (and in some cases funded) by the Student Government Association. They also receive advising and other support from the Center for Student Development. Private religious organizations provide their own funding and staff, and are recognized by the University through the Religious Affairs Committee.
For information about resources available to members of particular religious/spiritual traditions, including RSO's and private religious organizations which serve the University community, click on one of the links below.
Links to some student organizations can be found on the specific denominational pages on this website (e.g. Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc). A complete list of religious RSO's can also be found on the UMass Amherst Campus Pulse website. Click on "Categories" and then scroll down to "Religious Organizations".
If there are no RSO's which meet your religious or spiritual needs, find out how to start a new group by calling the Student Organization Resource Center (SORC) at 413-545-3600 ... or contact the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life for advice and assistance.
