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. 

The Office of Spiritual Life serves as a resource for students as they engage on their spiritual journey while at Drake. The Office of Spiritual Life promotes meaningful exploration through:

  • Engaging students, faculty, and staff in areas of interfaith dialogue and spiritual development
  • Providing a space for discussions dealing with complex ethical dilemmas and issues
  • Connecting members of the Drake Community to spiritual organizations on campus and in the greater Des Moines community
  • Serving as a resource in times of grief, upheaval, and difficulty
  • Hosting and promoting events and programs that facilitate personal growth as well as community development

We seek to promote meaningful exploration of spirituality while enhancing the Drake Community. Spiritual Life promotes meaningful dialogues, intentional programming, and community collaboration with the aspiration of not only promoting self-development, but the development of the community.
