    Through programs, events, and religious services, the Machtley Interfaith Center is dedicated to:

    • Providing Bryant members of various faith traditions a setting in which they may conduct worship in their traditions, and gather for fellowship, religious study, and religious programs.
    • Promoting increasing awareness of the world’s various faith traditions with the aim of developing our “religious literacy”, and fostering understanding and respect for people of different faith traditions than our own.
    • Acknowledging the spiritual dimension of life for all human beings and to promote the idea that the exploration of religious and spiritual questions, issues, values, and aspirations, in an informed, respectful milieu in which a variety of viewpoints are a part of the discussion, is appropriate to an academic community.
