What is the Wilson Center?


The Wilson Center is an independent, progressive religious voice on campus. We have deep Christian roots AND we respect a wide variety of viewpoints and faith traditions. Our most central value is the equality of all people – we welcome people of all genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, religions, ethnicities, abilities and economic backgrounds. We believe that we as a community and as individuals are enriched by diversity. We welcome seekers, agnostics, questioners and traditional believers.  We welcome interfaith and multicultural events of all kinds.

The Wilson Center Goals

  • To work for peace- both globally and locally
  • To reach out to all faiths and traditions and build true interfaith dialogue and programs
  • To explore & celebrate religion together and to develop the kind of inclusive, progressive religion of which we would like to be a part
  • To design (or cooperate with others in) local and global service projects that have meaning for our community
  • To enhance communication across lines of ethnicity, culture, religion, theology, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and economic class
  • To build worship services, ethics discussion groups, film series, dinners and other spiritual or social events that speak to the needs and desires of the UMaine community
