We believe that God has called us to reach every corner of every campus.
Change the university, change the world.
For over 75 years InterVarsity has had a vital presence on hundreds of college campuses, courageously proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, engaging in discipleship around scripture, and loving people of every ethnicity and culture.
Students make choices during their four years of college that lay the foundation for the next 40 years of their lives.
We know that 70% of church-going young adults stop attending church regularly between ages 18 and 22.
That’s why InterVarsity campus ministers and student leaders are on over 667 campuses, connecting students and faculty to Christ.

We serve them
Our chapters exist to serve the campus.
We welcome students into caring, diverse communities where they can build friendships and explore Christian faith in the marketplace of ideas.
Many campuses have more than one chapter, which may include separate outreaches to international students, nursing students, sororities and fraternities, athletes, artists, and ethnic minority groups, as well as faculty and career-specific graduate student chapters.
