Meditation & Prayer Room Is Now Available

By: Brian J. Beecher
Director of Library & Learning Commons

The new Meditation & Prayer Room is located in the southeast, first-floor section of the library.  This project was a collaborative effort by the Library faculty & staff, Office of Student Life and Conduct, and students from many faith- and non-faith backgrounds.

The room can comfortably accommodate 6-8 people, but can hold a maximum of 15 people.  The Meditation and Prayer Room is intended to be a quiet, welcoming and inclusive environment respecting the beliefs, traditions and cultures of everyone.  The room is meant for individual calm meditation, reflection and prayer.

The Meditation & Prayer Room is available on the first floor of the Library.

General oversight of the room is provided by the Office of Student Life and Conduct with monitoring of the space by the Library & Learning Commons.  The room is not available for reserve and minimal seating is provided.  The space can be used whenever the Library is open.
