Facilitated conversations on and off campus that cross boundaries of faith, religion, spirituality, and identity. In the listening and sharing we venture beyond the comfort of the familiar to honor our differences and create space for growth.

If you’ve been away from the normal Bates routine for any reason (study abroad, semester-long internships, taking time off) you understand that the transition back can feel…challenging, isolating, weird…something just isn’t the same.
Join us for a homemade dinner and student-led reflection on transitioning back to Bates.
