It asks who you want to be and how you want to live your life. Quest connects people of different backgrounds and faiths in an open, honest, and respectful environment we like to call our Interfaith Village.
The Quest program integrates exploration of one’s own faith tradition, academic coursework, community service, and participation in the group’s activities. After completing all program requirements, students are inducted into the Carpenter Society.
Quest welcomes students of all faiths. Participants have included Jews, Muslims, Baha’i, Jains, Sikhs, Hindus, Unitarians, Buddhists, and Christians of many denominations as well as some seekers not affiliated with a particular religious community.
Quest students are business majors, art majors, all majors. While most have studied through the College for Women, when Adult Degree Program students are able to join, the whole group benefits from their perspective and experience in life.

Reverend Katherine Low, chaplain:
QUEST is about questioning and respecting each different answer that everyone in the group finds. All too often, we are not encouraged to take true ownership of our religious faith. Like no other group that I have been a part of, QUEST is helping find answers for me.- Emily Alexander
These days, students are often asked ‘What do you want to do?’ In Quest, we try to strip away the pressure, asking them instead: ‘Who do you want to be?’- Patricia Hunt, Quest Founder and Former MBC Chaplain
