Office of Religious, Spiritual, and Ethical Life

At MIT, there are about forty active student religious organizations on campus, many of which are supported by one of twenty-five affiliated professionals in the Office of Religious, Spiritual, and Ethical Life (ORSEL). Affiliates support on-campus programming, provide confidential one-on-one counseling, and advise student religious organizations. See the ORSEL website for more info.

Religious, spiritual, moral and ethical convictions are important personal identity markers, and the Institute encourages the MIT community to thoughtfully engage with today’s pluralistic world. We in ORSEL are committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment, and the office adheres to the Institute‚Äôs nondiscrimination policy.
