…flourish in diversity…

SPECTRUM ‘Student Platform & Chaplaincy Wageningen’ is an open social student community, membership is not required. Our aim is to gather students in all their diversity for religious, philosophical and cultural exploration and discussion. We are motivated by hospitality and a genuine interest in the many different ways young people try to give meaning to their lives and supporting them in finding their passion. We want to make us of the diversity that is offered by this little town called Wageningen which is probably one of the most international places in the Netherlands.


SPECTRUM rests on the five pillars:

Spirituality – including religion, meditation, wisdom

Holistic growth – including head-heart-body, well-being, balance, passion, relaxation, harmony

Connecting – including community building, dialogue, harmony, learning from each other, inspiration

Philosophy – including ethics, dialogue, responsibility

Creativity – including art, self-expression, inspiration

Among the activities of SPECTRUM are social gatherings, excursions, trips, dialogue groups, cultural workshops, movies and discussion, life coaching, art workshops and training. Each one of us has a frail but fascinating place in the world: small and vulnerable, yet significant, creative, original and unique.  Invest in the development of your personality, your awareness, your spirituality, your passion. Deepen your spiritual or philosophic view in contact with other students. Face your existence and broaden your mind. Gather scientific knowledge and strive towards wisdom.

SPECTRUM is a local community of a countrywide network of organizations for students in the Netherlands.
