The William Jewett Tucker Center builds relationships and understanding across identities, engages in dialogue on meaningful issues, and cultivates spiritual and ethical lives that will make a profound difference on campus and beyond.  Our programs offer opportunities to cultivate a sense of connection and purpose through reflective personal exploration and intentional community engagement.

  • With a particular faith or tradition
  • Are questioning or     
  • searching for a spiritual/religious path
  • Are secular or of no faith
  • Are spiritual but not religious
  • Seek to understand and appreciate diversity

Tucker provides a unique experience to every student who enters our doors. Come make your home with us!

Do not expect you will make any lasting or very strong impression on the world through intellectual power without the use of an equal amount of character and heart of William Jewett Tucker, ninth president of the College.
