Identity Based Services
At the Unity Center we have a number of resources for students to explore on their own, but for students looking for one on one support, or who have specific needs, we have a number of services identified to be of help, and are happy to connect students to more.
Interfaith Services provides opportunities for prayer, workshop and meditation for support for faith-based student groups. Interfaith counseling and sessions are available with the campus chaplain on Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 3 pm. If you would like to schedule a time to meet with our chaplain, please schedule here: http://calendly.com/revsavannahponder/chaplain.
Interfaith Services also provides workshops, lectures and community service opportunities to educate the Rhode Island college community about understanding and respecting different faiths and religions.
Interfaith Services can provide students with a full list of addresses and contact information for places of worship located in the surrounding area.
Students are invited to join St. James Episcopal Services on Sundays at 12 PM located on 474 Fruit Hill Ave, North Providence, RI 02911 which is a 4 minute drive from campus! They are friendly and inviting to students of all race, gender, and sexuality.
