Religious and Spiritual Life Organizations

Agnes Scott's Interfaith Council oversees all student religious and spiritual organizations and helps to plan and organize activities on campus. In 2019 the first-ever Interfaith week brought together the many faith traditions and highlighted the beautiful tapestry of their organizations. The chair of the Interfaith Council serves as a senator on the Student Government Association and speaks on behalf of the religious and spiritual needs of students. For more information on the council or how to get started with creating a new organization, contact Rev. Whitney Booth Lockard at wboothlockard@agnesscott.edu.
