Welcome to The Wilson Center


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, nationalities, 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.


Wilson Center Goals:

  • To explore Christianity together and to develop the kind of inclusive, progressive Christianity of which we would like to be a part
  • To reach out to other faiths and traditions and build true interfaith dialogue and programs
  • 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 work for peace – both globally and locally
  • 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
