In your time in college, you will likely begin to ask yourself such questions as, "what is all this for?", "what is my purpose in life?", "how can I become a better person and make a difference in the world?" The Council of Religious Advisors is a network of community leaders and student organizations representing diverse religious and spiritual worldviews at UMD. There are over a dozen communities of students where you can build friendships and join others in living a life that makes a difference.  No matter what your background, we would love to connect with you and help you begin a journey of exploring spirituality for yourself.  


The Council of Religious Advisors (CRA) at the University of Minnesota Duluth promotes good will, cooperation and dialogue among all faiths represented at UMD; fosters a campus atmosphere conducive to religious life and thinking; and helps individuals in our UMD community develop as people who contribute positively to our global society.

We're on a journey to discover our spirituality.

FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, is a national organization seeking to set the world on fire for Christ by making disciples of all nations, one college student at a time. At UMD, FOCUS missionaries work with Newman Catholic Campus Ministries to bring students closer to Jesus through Bible studies, one-on-one mentorship, conferences, international mission trips, and most importantly, life lived abundantly and lived together. Contact a missionary to learn more about how to become a world changer.

We seek to be a multi-ethnic community of students at UMD who know the full life that Jesus offers. We offer small group communities throughout the dorms and apartments where we study the life of Jesus, the purposes of God, challenging one another to put our faith into action.  InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, is an evangelical and interdenominational campus ministry. InterVarsity is active on more than 600 college and university campuses nationwide.

Lutheran Campus Ministry (LCM - ELCA) strives to be a community of students that take charge and grow in their faith.  LCM offers things from worship, community outreach, fellowship, small groups, retreats, music, and much more.  Everything is planned by students themselves and they make the ministry their own. Anchored in Christ's Love, LCM is an open, welcoming, and caring community.  It's your Faith - Experience it!
