"USC’s Office of Religious Life sponsors a variety of opportunities for exploring the spiritual dimensions of your life and learning. We can help you find a religious home base or form a new group, handle an ethical dilemma or research a paper topic. The Office sponsors campus programs with a moral, religious or spiritual focus. It co-sponsors events with other university units and partnerships of student religious groups. And we are there for the entire USC community in times of celebration and loss, to offer benedictions at university convocations and to help organize memorial services as needed."

"USC’s Office of Religious Life oversees more student religious groups and more campus religious directors than any other university in the United States. USC also sits in the heart of Los Angeles, a city many scholars consider the most religiously diverse metropolis in the world. This convergence gives USC students the remarkable opportunity to engage in meaningful and proactive interfaith and interreligious dialogue and action, both on our campus and in our city. The Office of Religious Life hosts a number of regular interfaith programs, such as the USC Interfaith Council, Shanti Multifaith Choir, and Souljourn, and the Office of Religious Life also works in close collaboration with global interfaith leaders, such as the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, the Interfaith Youth Core, and Patheos. Furthermore, the Office of Religious Life produces and manages INGAGE, the first and only interfaith enewsletter for Southern California."
