MOSAIC stands for Meaningful Open Spiritual And Inter-religious Collaborative. The image captures the gathering of students with different backgrounds in a way that allows these differences to shine, instead of melding together as they would in a melting pot. In MOSAIC, students learn about religious beliefs and culture, discover ways to negotiate real life issues that arise from interfaith engagement, and explore issues of common concern.
MOSAIC does not have regularly scheduled meetings, but offers periodic discussions and social events. Discussions have addressed religious views of death and afterlife, religion and sexuality, accommodating religious diversity in public schools, and interfaith/ecumenical marriage. Annual social events include a Fall Crawl to the different religious houses on campus for socializing over food, and a Religious Life Mixer in the spring.
MOSAIC coordinates the annual SRL Week, which offers programs, performances, discussions, and fellowship events to the campus community. Weekly themes are chosen to support the College’s annual theme and have included “Women in Religion,” “Connections,” and “Faith and Community.”
