All are welcome
We believe that every person is of sacred worth and that everyone should be made to feel welcome
Our Religious Life Community seeks to personify love, justice and reconciliation—values informed by religious and spiritual traditions. We welcome and value the participation of all races, nationalities, sexual and affectional orientations, gender identities, mental and physical health and abilities, systems of belief and theological identities.
Together we will strive to embody a radical hospitality that welcomes all, as shown to us by God.

Simpson Youth Academy
Simpson is pleased to offer the Simpson Youth Academy, a program for current high school students that allows them to explore their faith more deeply. Some of the questions explored in the 10-day long, on-campus experience have included:
Can faith and politics mix?
Why is there suffering in the world?
Why do religions seem to cause so much violence in the world?
How can I live a life of faithfulness and integrity?
Following the group experience, students are paired with a mentor that works with them and guides them for nine months, leading up to a final project. Learn more about this amazing opportunity for high school students.
