Coming Soon: Fall 2022 Care Groups Schedule

Do you ever feel like its hard to find a safe space to be yourself at Cornell? Care Groups aim to be the space you've been looking for. You can connect with a caring group of fellow students and find the support you need for your spiritual and social wellbeing. 

Care Groups are not therapy groups, nor are they seminar-style study groups; rather, they are CURW-facilitated community groups that help you give and receive support and care. The length, frequency, and audience for each group varies, but what they have in common is a commitment to creating spaces that nurture holistic wellbeing. Groups are open to students of all religious, spiritual, and worldview identities. 

CURW is a cooperative interfaith ministry team with spiritual leaders who represent a variety of spiritual traditions. CURW Care Groups are not intended to be spaces for proselytizing or converting people to a particular religious point of view; rather, they are designed to be spaces where each member can share their spiritual perspectives and make meaning of their experiences. We affirm the individual experiences and approaches to spirituality that each student may bring to these conversations. All Care Group participants are encouraged to speak from their own particular experiences and respect the experiences of others.
