Spiritual support

 At DMU, we highly value spiritual support on campus and recognise that it is a great tool for coping with many of life’s challenges. Spirituality is an integral part of wellbeing for many students at DMU and as part of #HealthyDMU we want to ensure that our spiritual services empower you and enrich your student experience.

OpenFaith is a part of #HealthyDMU that incorporates faith and spirituality within our wellbeing and welfare services. OpenFaith encourages students of all faiths and no-faith to come together in celebrating diversity and universal humanitarian values. The initiative encourages campus cohesion by welcoming all students and staff of all faiths and no faith to access a variety of spiritual facilities.

This DMU initiative is open to all regardless of belief and encourages staff and students to be able to explore spirituality, faith, religion and all belief systems in an open and accessible way. As part of #HealthyDMU all OpenFaith related activities focus on the health and wellbeing of students as well as supporting growth and personal development.
