As a nondenominational institution, Bryn Mawr does not employ or endorse any religious advisers, groups or representatives. However, we recognize that religion is a significant aspect of many students' lives and that the free exercise of religion, as well as the open and vigorous discussion of religious ideas, is important to the educational mission of the College and to the quality of student life on campus. We therefore extend hospitality and assistance to religious advisers and to student religious groups that serve the spiritual and religious needs of our student population.
Any questions relating to religious advising at Bryn Mawr College, including but not limited to questions regarding the Guidelines and Code of Conduct, should be addressed to:
Director of the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life
The Pensby Center
Employees of the College are free to hold and express their religious ideas and beliefs as individuals. They are not, however, to use their access to students through the College or their authority as College officials to promote any set of religious convictions or commitments. Attempts to do so should be reported to the Office of Intercultural Affairs or to the supervisor of the employee in question.
