URSA Mission Statement

The Undergraduate Religious Studies Association (URSA), a group open to religious studies majors as well as non-majors, seeks to be a vibrant forum for the exchange of ideas among curious minds. By extending discussion outside the classroom, URSA hopes to enhance each student's educational experience. To this end URSA will work to connect students in dialogue, both among themselves and with the faculty of the religious studies department. URSA's aim is to provide a discussion setting that is not only educational, but also enjoyable, taking the form of public lectures as well as movie nights and faculty-led discussion lunches. Beyond the campus, URSA aspires to be a link to the Bloomington and Indiana communities by organizing field trips to places of religious and scholastic interest.
