Numerous religious groups on campus represent the spiritual diversity of the student body. Members of the University of Denver Religious Council ("DURC") lead some of those groups, and aid the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life in realizing its vision and accomplishing its mission. The DURC is made up of official representatives of religious groups or traditions recognized by the University as serving an existing campus constituency.
DU Interfaith Advocates
The University of Denver Interfaith Advocates (DUIA) represent students from all areas of the University and multiple religious traditions. They are passionate about creating a welcoming, inclusive campus community where all religious (and non-religious) viewpoints are respected. They have put on programs as diverse as "Speed-Faithing" (like speed-dating, but without the angst) and a dinner and panel discussion under the banner of "Eat Better Together". They also take an active interest in community service, working on an Interfaith Habitat for Humanity project, and helping out with other volunteer opportunities sponsored by the Religious & Spiritual Affairs.
The Advocates partner with the Interfaith Youth Core, a Chicago-based non-profit that works with young people of all (and no) religious backgrounds to create positive change on their campuses and in their larger communities. Several Advocates are alumni of the IFYC's Interfaith Leadership Institutes and bring great passion and skills to their work at DU. WE, at DU, strive to make getting to these conferences possible for interested students!
