Spiritual Life at Queens
Religious and spiritual life at queens
Our Presbyterian History and Pluralist Statement
We affirm Queens’ ties, established at our founding in 1857, with the Presbyterian Church (USA). This tradition has embedded core values such as service, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to the common good in Queens' institutional culture.
Thus the Queens community promotes the civic good by fostering knowledge and nurturing relationships among people of different religious and philosophical world views. This pluralistic approach lies at the heart of the transformative educational experience Queens provides.
Presbyterian Church (USA)
The Presbyterian Church is anchored in the Reformed tradition, which is marked by historical, theological, and institutional commitments to education for the common good and the dignity of all people. Thus, our pluralistic approach is because of our heritage, not in spite of it.
Our community is student-centered, diverse, and inclusive of all people. Thus, our faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners nurture the student journey through transformative encounters across all kinds of difference—including religious and philosophical world views.
Clubs and Organizations
There are several opportunities for students to contact to religious and spiritual life clubs and organizations including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Hillel, Interfaith Leadership Council, Muslim Student Association, and Reformed University Fellowship.

Scholarships Through Belk Chapel
The Robert and Pamela Davies Fellowship offers a signature Belk Chapel experience for students who are committed to exploring religious and spiritual life at Queens and beyond.
Our Davies fellows learn in both academic and co-curricular settings, serve as campus leaders, engage in community outreach, and reflect together on faith-based or philosophical values that shape their lives.
