Mission Statement: The Cambridge University Bahá’í Society (CUBS) is a welcoming space for undergraduate and postgraduate students and staff of all faiths and backgrounds. It aims to provide a forum for members of the University to explore the Writings of the Bahá’í Faith and reflect upon their relevance to contemporary issues. The Bahá’í Society also provides opportunities for community service and involvement in interfaith activities with other University societies. The founding principles of the Bahá’í Faith include the oneness of humankind, oneness of religion, equality between men and women, universal education, and eradication of extremes of wealth and poverty.

  • Commensurate with available resources and where appropriate, learn about contributing to prevalent discourses concerned with the betterment of society in various social spaces of the University.
