About us

The University of Saskatchewan has a longstanding history of collaboration with faith representatives who have contributed to a campus culture of respect, inclusion, and pluralism. 

The growing diversity of religious and spiritual backgrounds and beliefs of the University community presents an opportunity to build robust connections with communities of faith, interfaith understanding, and co-operation. Faith Leaders are advocates for such conversations, provide spiritual guidance, support to the University community, advice regarding religious issues, and educational and cultural events.

Some Faith Leaders provide one-on-one spiritual counsel and all represent links to their wider faith communities.
