About CSDS

The Center for Spirituality, Dialogue and Service offers transformative experiences of spiritual exploration, interreligious dialogue, and service learning across Northeastern’s global university system.

The Center for Spirituality, Dialogue, and Service attends to the spiritual needs of the Northeastern community. CSDS offers a wide array of experiential learning programs, events, and resources to serve students, faculty, staff, and alumni across the global university system.

Northeastern is home to all major world religions and welcomes people of every spiritual, religious, and secular humanist tradition. Northeastern celebrates and cultivates interfaith diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, and strives to create a culture of pluralism, dialogue, wellness, and understanding.

At Northeastern, spirituality includes many people who identify with particular religious traditions, and many who do not; we believe that the search for meaning, wisdom, moral action, and authentic community are universal human undertakings available to all.

CSDS is located within Cultural and Spiritual Life (CSL), Student Affairs, and the Chancellor’s Office, and is accessible to learners across the entire Northeastern university system.

The Center builds partnerships across university departments and disciplines—and with religious communities and public service agencies locally, nationally, and internationally—to help students become spiritually-grounded global citizens and ethical leaders prepared to help build a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
