"The Truitt Center enables members of the Elon University
community to learn about their own and other faiths,
and to live lives of reconciliation

Located in the Numen Lumen Pavilion

The Truitt Center is a safe place for spiritual growth, worldview exploration (religious and secular), and interfaith engagement. Our mission is to encourage students to honor the spiritual dimension of life, to respect religious and cultural differences, to deepen and explore their faith traditions and worldviews, to embrace the present responsibly and the future with hope, and to live the principles they value.

Get Connected

We have a vibrant set of religious, spiritual, and philosophical communities, including support for more traditional religious identities (Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu), yoga and meditation, interfaith community, and a group for secular students and atheists.

To experess interst in any of our groups, fill out the Spiritual Interest Form, and a student or staff member will contact you.

"SAGES is a very important group for Elon's community.  At a basic level, how can we connect with every human being regardless of creed, faith, or dogma?  To me, this is the most important question we are trying to answer as a group.  If Elon students are going to be global citizens, we have to learn how to connect with people from all types of backgrounds.  This is what we are trying to discover." - Cole Harbur '16
