Spirituality at Drake

At Drake we understand wellness to have at least six facets: intellectual, social, emotional, physical, occupational, and spiritual. The specific path that each student takes in each of these areas is a matter of deep, personal choice. 

Spiritual practice is an important part of life for many Drake students. There are a number of faith-based student organizations on campus, and the Des Moines area is host to wide variety of faith communities. This broad spectrum of beliefs and practices creates a vibrant culture that adds to the sense of campus diversity. If your student is looking for spiritual assistance, please have them contact Ted Lyddon Hatten, Spiritual Coordinator at
