In Thomas Hunter Hall, students from six different religious groups will share space in what is a model of diversity across religious, racial, national and economic lines. The new Multifaith Center houses Muslim Student Association, Hillel, Hindu Student Association, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Korea Campus Crusade for Christ, and the Sikh Student Association. There is also room for Chaplains of different faiths as well as a room designated for multifaith programming.
Hunter has a long history of providing a welcoming environment to students of all religious and spiritual backgrounds. Nearly three quarters of a century ago, Hunter had the country’s first student space dedicated to interfaith and interracial understanding when it acquired Roosevelt House and renamed it Sara Delano Roosevelt Memorial Interfaith House, using the part of the home where Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt lived and raised their family.
