Mills Spiritual and Religious Life (SRL) is offering a limited number of positions open to seminarians or graduate students in Religious Studies who are interested in supporting spiritual growth and development on a vibrant campus, this includes supporting student groups, offering chaplaincy, supporting interfaith education and learning programs, and more. Completing service-learning/internship/field placements at Mills Spiritual and Religious Life (SRL) offers a unique opportunity to work with an energetic, diverse student body committed to social justice.

Applicants should be interested and comfortable working within a context of spiritual and religious pluralism. SRL at Mills welcomes people interested in spirituality and social change, spirituality and the arts, leadership development, as well as campus ministry/chaplaincy.

Projects and areas of focus will be determined in conjunction with supervisor, based upon the individual’s learning-serving goals, and alignment with mission and goals of the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life.
