Faith/Spiritual Registered Student Organizations

As a diverse and inclusive campus community, Western Michigan University welcomes and encourages spirituality and faith based Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). Building one’s own sense of self and purpose is not always tied to a single religion or set of beliefs, while for other students it may be. At WMU, you will find RSOs which are affiliated with particular religions as well as those which are interfaith and non-denominational. RSOs offer a plethora of unique programming opportunities to support your spiritual development as a Bronco.
