Inter-Faith Office

Betty and a few students meeting
Campus Ministry at Cazenovia College:
Serving God's Community on Campus.

As a non-denominational institution, students come to Cazenovia College from a diverse array of religious and spiritual backgrounds. The Inter-Faith Office offers a variety of programs and opportunities for all students regardless of their religious affiliation. Services include individual spiritual guidance, spiritual direction, bereavement counseling, special occasion prayer services, retreats, and information on area houses of worship.

Religious Observances
Cazenovia College encourages students to participate in observance of their religious obligations and practices. No student will be denied admission or be suspended because religious obligations and practices may prevent participation in any examination, study or work requirement. An equivalent opportunity will be provided to each student, at no charge, to make up an examination, study or work requirement for absences due to religious commitments. Any student who intends to be absent from classes to observe religious obligations and practices must notify each instructor in writing by the end of the first week of classes of the term in which the religious event occurs. If the religious event should occur during the opening of the College or the first week of classes, the student must notify the Offices of Academic Affairs and Enrollment Services Center in writing of absences due to religious commitments.

Community Involvement
Social justice opportunities abound: Thanksgiving Baskets, Mitten Tree, Blanket Drive, Rice Bowl, Habitat for Humanity, visits to the shut-ins, elderly, and Nursing Homes, and much more!

The Inter-Faith Committee is a group of people representing many different faiths who come together in unity to address the needs of the Campus.  This committee includes clergy and lay ministers from the Presbyterian, Episcopal, Methodist, Baptist, Catholic, Muslim, Society of Friends and Jewish faiths.
Please contact us in the Inter-Faith Office or visit our Facebook page if you have any questions or concerns.
