About Us

The mission of the Office of the Chaplaincy is to inspire generous faith and engage the heart of the University.

The office, which is located in the Wilton Center between Cannon Memorial Chapel and Tyler Hanes Commons, consists of five full-time staff members, two part-time staff members, and 14 affiliated campus ministers. Together, we focus on five strategic goals to advance our mission:

  • Create structures of inclusion for the diversity of faith traditions present on campus
  • Encourage students to grow deeply in their own traditions and learn about the traditions and beliefs of others
  • Provide care and support to all members of the University community, particularly students
  • Develop programming for students to explore spirituality in a variety of non-traditional and emerging forms
  • Animate conversations of meaning to cultivate our highest ideals of responsible living and learning

The chaplaincy organizes several initiatives in support of these objectives, including pilgrimage programs; the Multifaith dinner and discussion; the Weinstein-Rosenthal Forum; and programs for ChristianJewish, and Muslim Life.
