KU Sets Up All Faiths Reflection Room

Associated Press - June 29, 2015 8:14 am

The University of Kansas will offer a meditation and reflection room for people of all faiths and beliefs, beginning this fall.

The room will be non-denominational and encourage tolerance of all faiths, spiritual beliefs and practices.

TheĀ  room will be in a small conference room in the Kansas Union. It will be a temporary reflection room until a permanent one can be established.

The Students Senate said in a statement that the room is a small but important step toward making the university more inclusive and diverse.

Establishing the room was a yearlong process led in part by Shegufta Huma, a Muslim who says students of her faith met in small spaces across campus for 10-to-15-minute prayer sessions they hold several times a day.
