Interfaith Room & Local Worship

Champlain College embraces a community of religious and spiritual diversity.

In 2019, the College opened an Interfaith Room on the Burlington main campus, located in the Miller Information Commons (MIC) Library, Room 220. The Interfaith Room provides a centrally-located, private, and quiet environment for those who wish to participate in worship and reflection while on campus. Open during regular Library hours, MIC 220 can be accessed through the main stairwell, elevator, or the side stairwell for greater privacy. The room is equipped with a bench, shoe rack, floor pillows, and various religious and spiritual texts.

Students will also find various interfaith and religious-based student organizations, recognized by the Student Government Association.

Resources listed with "LGBTQIA+ Affirming" next to them are congregations we have confirmed participated in local Pride celebrations. If you have questions about a specific organization, we suggest looking at the organization's website for an explicit statement of welcome and/or an official designation. Key phrases to look for are as follows:

  • In the United Church of Christ, if a congregation is listed as "Open and Affirming," they have made a public commitment to have LGBTQIA+ in all levels of their ministry and church membership.
  • In the United Methodist Church, look for the phrase "Reconciling Congregation."
  • In the Presbyterian Church, look for the phrase "More Light Congregation."

Thank you to Reverend Laura Engelken from the UVM Interfaith Center for all the tips!
