The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life educates and models exploration and expressions of faith and spirituality; nurtures a welcoming, supportive, courageous environment where people engage one another for meaningful and balanced living.

The Esch Hurvis Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is a welcoming place for curious, intentional, respectful engagement with persons of similar, different or no religious tradition, and for quiet personal reflection and spiritual practice.

Our Library

Reaching toward new discoveries and exploring courageously, books within our library allow the users of the center to explore the meaning and expression of spirituality through many lenses. Search by tags that correspond to an alphabet of spirituality, or surf the collection by typing ‘your library’ in the search box and allow yourself a glimpse of the poetry, sacred texts, spiritual literature, and spiritually insightful narratives.  Complete the checkout card, leave it in the bin provided, and you can borrow for 30 days (or more if the book really speaks to you).
