Organization Description:

The Office of Faith and Service believes in graduating socially responsible and civically engaged individuals who understand their role as entrepreneurs to not only give back to the community, but also use their competencies to look at global social justice issues and seek innovation within a multi-cultural and multi-faith community. To accomplish this goal, the Office of Faith and Service challenges Babson students and our community to explore the intersection of faith and service as they relate to social justice through action and reflection. Within the Office of Faith and Service are the Glavin Family Chapel and the Bernon Center for Public Service.

The Glavin Family Chapel offers faith based programs on a weekly basis and for special events.

The Bernon Center for Public Service offers curricular and co-curricular service opportunities. These opportunities include weekly programs, special events and alternative break programs.

Opportunities for Student Involvement:

The opportunities for student involvement are abundant. The multi-faith team is currently comprised of seven Chaplains. The Chaplains represent Buddhist, Catholic, Protestant, Hindu, Muslim, and Jewish. Not only do we have opportunities for religious support, but our students involved in spiritual and religious life are invited to be on the Multifaith Council. In addition, the Multi-faith Team supports the Bernon Center for Public Service by offering bi-weekly service and civic reflections. The Office of Faith and Service offers retreats campus wide and also supports the Foundation Management for Entrepreneurship reflections. There are a plethora of opportunities to get involved.
