About Chaplaincy

University and college chaplains are professional clergy and laypersons who seek to enhance the spiritual, ethical, and educational experience of the whole person—mind, body, and soul.

We encourage and support spiritual development, theological reflection, religious understanding, and sense of belonging among students, faculty, and staff. Our commitment is to further spiritual well-being.

We ensure that all participants in campus life have access to religious, spiritual, and ethical services, resources, and practices of their own choosing. We provide opportunities for all to explore questions of meaning, value, and purpose. In times of joy and sorrow, we are dedicated to being a caring, gentle, accessible presence. And we promote respect for all beliefs, traditions, and worldviews, as well as considerate interaction with and learning from one another.
