Russell Sage College, Troy
The Jane Haight Wells Spirituality Center is a place that:
- welcomes those who seek quiet prayer and meditation;
- encourages a space for felt experience: a place where older, honored traditions can be re-created to bring richness and depth to the present;
- fosters individual development of belief systems through intellectual investigation and personal reflection;
- which is tied to the community beyond The Sage Colleges, leading to concerned action for others in our city, country and world.
The Spirituality Center at Sage is a part of Troy Area Ministries (TAUM) – an ecumenical association of congregations joined with people of all faiths and backgrounds to serve people in need, to work for social justice and to build a stronger community.
Cornerstone Protestant Campus Ministry serves the over 18,000 undergrads and grad students at the University at Albany. Our mission is to “bring students together at UAlbany to make a difference in the world.” We bring students together by offering on-campus weekly worship, Bible study and social events. We equip them to make a difference in the world through our on-going hands-on service projects and advocacy work for social justice. The ministry is inter-denominational. Rev. Sandy J. Damhof serves as the Campus Minister and is assisted by a team of Peer Ministers who oversee the work of the ministry. Cornerstone has also partnered with approximately 20 churches in the area who serve as Congregational Partners and provide support both financially and with co-sponsoring programs. The Protestant Campus Ministry shares facilities and programming with the Interfaith Center at UAlbany providing an opportunity to study, share and serve together with a variety of faith traditions.
