Faith on Campus

Faith on Campus

Campus Ministries is an association for faith communities active at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.  Membership is open to all religious groups recognized by the university.  Each faith community organizes its own activities.  The overall goals of Campus Ministries are to connect students to their particular faith community, to promote spiritual growth, and to support the relevancy of religious expression on our university campus.

The following is a list of faith communities with campus ministries at SIU. If you’re looking for a faith community not listed here, or you have any other questions, please contact our president, Jay Holden.
