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.

Self-Care and Renewal during a Pandemic
Self-Care is not selfish. We can better care for others when we also remember to care for ourselves. This year, especially, there are many reasons to feel stressed and overwhelmed. The Truitt Center offers multiple opportunities to connect, recharge, and renew.
