Our Space

We want students to find a space to express their religious or ethical identity, be challenged by hearing about other identities, and be equipped to find ways to be in relationship no matter how we orient around religion.

Lunch & Learn - People of the Book

Join the Reflection Center for a Lunch & Learn opportunity about "People of the Book"! Scholar Craig Considine, one of the most powerful global voices speaking in admiration of the prophet of Islam, provides answers to these questions. Through a careful study of works by historians and theologians, he highlights an idea central to Muhammad's vision: an inclusive Ummah, or Muslim nation, rooted in citizenship rights, interfaith dialogue, and freedom of conscience, religion and speech.  Learn more about People of the Book

This is a picture of UVU's Reflection Center Convening Room.

Convening Room

The Convening Room is a space for religious club meetings, gatherings, and interfaith events. This is not a place that tells you how to engage in your faith, but engages you in opportunities to learn more about interfaith dialogue and the beliefs and practices of others. The library is an important part of this process along with the activities and events held in the space.

 

*Available when there is a member of staff present
