Interfaith Engagement

USC’s Office of Religious & Spiritual Life oversees more student religious groups and more campus religious directors than any other university in the United States. USC also sits in the heart of Los Angeles, a city many scholars consider the most religiously diverse metropolis in the world. This convergence gives USC students the remarkable opportunity to engage in meaningful and proactive interfaith and interreligious dialogue and action, both on our campus and in our city.

The Office of Religious Life hosts a number of regular interfaith programs, such as the USC Interfaith Council, Shanti Multifaith Choir, and Souljourn. The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life also works in close collaboration with global interfaith leaders, such as the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, the Interfaith Youth Core, and Patheos. Furthermore, the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life produces and manages INGAGE, the first and only interfaith e-newsletter for Southern California.
