Law Library Guide on Stress Management, Mindfulness and Wellness
Law school is stressful. This LawGuide was created to help you manage that stress in serious ways and not-so-serious ways.
The University’s long-term commitment to support diversity on campus extends to spiritual life, recognizing that religious diversity enriches academic inquiry. To that end, RWU has in residence a University Multifaith Chaplain and affiliated chaplains from the Jewish, Catholic, Protestant and Islamic traditions. This group works to accomplish three crucial goals: access to pastoral care for students, staff and faculty; support for programming in various religious traditions; and enrichment of interfaith life on campus.
In addition to the Spiritual Life Program, many local churches, synagogues, mosques and meditation centers welcome students from RWU.
More about the Spiritual Life Program can be found online here.
