Student Organizations

Faith Based Student Orgs supported by OSMM and CURW

Cornell University has a variety of faith-based, spiritual, and religious oriented organizations. These groups are supported by OSMM staff and CURW campus ministers and spiritual advisors. Please click the links below to learn more about these groups.

Interfaith Council, Cornell

The Cornell Interfaith Council seeks to promote interfaith dialogue and support religious life on campus, while encouraging shared understanding and celebration of our differences.  As an umbrella organization for faith-based clubs on campus, CIC works to provide funding and guidance for underrepresented and underserved communities at Cornell. Events such as our Faith Hop, Winter Holiday Party, and Speaker Series serve to foster inclusivity and respect on campus.

Cornell Catholic

The Cornell Catholic Community is gathered around Jesus Christ and centered in the Eucharist. We pray, worship, learn and spread the Good News on campus fostering awareness of God’s presence, building community, developing love for creation, and integrating faith, justice and service into everyday life.


Episcopal Church at Cornell

The Episcopal Church at Cornell is a vibrant group of Cornell undergrads, grad students, and other community members committed to campus ministry. Our life together is built upon the weekly celebration of Eucharist and a shared dinner. When we baptise, we pray for an “inquiring and discerning heart” - we love to ask questions, and through study programs, sermons, and our observances throughout the liturgical year, we come to know God together as we deepen our knowledge of theology and the church.


Orthodox Christian Fellowship

The Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is the official collegiate campus ministry program under the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America. Our mission is to support fellowships on college campuses, whose members experience and witness the Orthodox Christian Church through community life, prayer, service to others, and study of the Faith. In the past, we’ve had picnics and similar gatherings, invited guest speakers to discuss important tenets of Orthodoxy, and visited monasteries.


Cornell Hillel

Cornell Hillel is a home for Jewish Student Life at Cornell. We host hundreds of gatherings, events, trips, clubs, speakers, and internships in which students explore and challenge their Jewish identity. Whether it's attending one of our student-led Shabbat meals, exploring Jewish texts for the first or 100th time, grabbing coffee with our team of Jewish educators, or traveling to Israel with Big Red Birthright, Cornell Hillel is here to support Jews of all backgrounds. Have an idea for a cool event? Pitch us over coffee. Check us out on Facebook or Instagram.

 

Latter-day Saint Student Association

Members of the LDSSA come together to support each other in learning and following the teachings of Jesus Christ. We welcome all to our weekly social activities and scripture study classes, held in collaboration with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Kesher

Kesher is Cornell's Reform Jewish minyan. Each week, we come together for a student-led Shabbat evening service featuring music, group readings, and D'varim Torah.
