Welcome to ARC

Our Mission

The Association of Religious Counselors (ARC) is an independent association of representatives from religious and spiritual communities that serve the students, staff, and faculty of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Committed to the central role of religion and spirituality in the development of the whole human being - body, heart, mind, and soul - ARC advocates for the religious, spiritual, and ethical dimensions of university life. ARC provides its members opportunities for networking, education, and advocacy. In addition, ARC facilitates communication and cooperation between its members and the University of Michigan. ARC is guided by understanding and respect for the societal, cultural, and religious diversity of the student community and the university environment that embraces it.

For Students

Welcome to the University of Michigan! ARC represents many religious and spiritual organizations around campus that support students. Check out our membership to see if a group appeals to you. There may be other religious groups that are not represented but that you may be interested in.
