United Pagan Ministries was formed to provide services, education, support and
advocacy for the Pagan community of Cornell University and surrounding Ithaca
and Tompkins County, NY. UPM also seeks to provide education and resources
concerning Pagans and Paganism to other religious organisations and to the
community at large. To this end, we sponsor a range of activities including our
Paganism 101 workshop series, and are developing
a growing collection of Pagan books and written resources housed at the
Durland Alternatives Library.
UPM has been a member ministry of
Cornell United Religious Work (CURW) since December of 1996.
United Pagan Ministries is dedicated to promoting understanding of Pagan
religions in today's world. As a collegiate Pagan ministry, UPM is also dedicated
to furthering recognition and serious study of Paganism within academia. Ever since
its founding, UPM has been interested in the potentials inherent in networking with
other Pagan ministries and organizations at colleges and universities. In our efforts
to create such a network we came upon the initiative to create the
Collegiate Pagan Alliance
Network. UPM is pleased to be one of the seven founding member organisations of CPAN.
UPM is an interfaith ministry, and any member of the community who claims a Pagan religious or
spiritual identity may affiliate with UPM, so long as they abide by the statements of philosophy in the
UPM charter at UPM functions and while acting as representatives of the ministry. UPM
events and rituals are open to those who wish to attend, as are the weekly meetings of
the UPM Board. United Pagan Ministries operates by consensus at all gatherings.
If you would like to offer comments or suggestions, are interested in scheduling a workshop, or would like more
information please feel free to contact us.
