Student Senate recognizes new religious group on URI campus

The University of Rhode Island Student Senate recognized a new group during their meeting on Wednesday night.

The Campus Ministry International (CMI) organization is centered on promoting a public forum in which all members can openly discuss and study the teachings of Jesus Christ.

"We don't just want to learn more about each other, but [also] our spirituality," Raquel Mendez, the president of CMI and member of senate, said. "[This group] is different than most of the organizations that just focus on religion."

Due to their former president being too busy and missing a number of meetings, the club failed to apply for the Senate's re-recognition bill, on which the group voted last week.

CMI currently has around 15 members and intends on holding Bible studies and inviting pastors from Providence to give discussions.  All interested are encouraged to join.
