Religion or Belief

We're proud to celebrate and value the diversity of all our students, staff and visitors. We're also proud to create a positive working, learning and teaching environment where every belief is respected. To do this, we work hard to educate and raise awareness of the many cultural, religious, non-religious and philosophical beliefs represented on campus.

Interfaith Month

November is Interfaith Awareness Month in the college.  Glasgow is home to people from a diverse range of spiritual and non-spiritual backgrounds and the college is committed to celebrating this diversity through initiatives, such as our Chaplaincy service and Sanctuary spaces.

Despite the diverse religions and faiths represented around Glasgow and Scotland, a lack of understanding can still sometimes cause tensions between, or against certain faith groups. Interfaith Awareness Month provides an opportunity to learn more about different religions and faiths, as well as how the college is supporting them, in order to advance good relations which will benefit everyone.
