The C of I is a member of the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities (APCU). We support a thriving, voluntary, multi-denominational Christian program, regular Catholic programming, an active LDS student group, an endowed Jewish chair with regular activities, numerous all-campus lectures on faith and culture, and regular interfaith activities and programs.
We promote a campus environment of free, open academic inquiry and free religious expression. We nurture an open campus society in which diverse faith perspectives are practiced with dialogue and respect, and value an education that integrates the head with the heart and hands. Please email, or visit us in our offices upstairs in McCain to learn more about these groups and how you can participate.
Christian Community Programming
Programming regularly involves 10-20 percent of the C of I community, including a weekly large group gathering for worship and teaching, numerous small group Bible studies, local and international service trips, leadership development, paid internships, and regular community activities.
Nearly equal numbers of students are involved from a variety of Christian denominations, both Protestant and Catholic, and many students are involved who are just exploring faith and spirituality.
Incoming Freshmen and transfer students can receive scholarships for Christian community leadership. Scholarships are renewable for up to 4 years. Interested? Contact Phil Rogers for an application.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and volunteers can learn through service on C of I "Potter's Clay" trips. Past service opportunities have included Caldwell and the Treasure Valley, Seattle, San Francisco, and New York. It has also included hurricane relief in Louisiana and Texas as well as international service in Mexico, Malawi, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and more.
