Who we are
The Office of Faith and Action provides resources and opportunities to guide students as they cultivate an ethical worldview, act purposefully, and change the world for good. For more than 150 years, North Central College students from different faith traditions have united as a campus community where mutual respect produces vibrant discussion and collective action. Affiliated with the United Methodist Church and rooted in the Christian tradition, North Central encourages students to ask questions and develop their personal faith during this spiritually pivotal time in their lives.
