Your Chaplains Are Still Available
Elon University is holding classes online and buildings are closed to foot traffic. In the midst of our physical distance, our Chaplains and Truitt Center staff are available to students for support, education, and meeting online.
The Chaplain’s Fund exists to support students, faculty, and staff who are in need of additional support because of an unexpected crisis or emergency. If you have questions or would like to request assistance, please contact Jan Register.
Contact a Chaplain or Professional Staff
We are working remotely. If we do not answer your phone call, please leave a message, and we will respond as quickly as possible. For urgent concerns and questions, please contact the Truitt Center main office at 336.278.7729.

The Truitt Center
The Truitt Center is a safe place for spiritual growth, worldview exploration (religious and secular), and interfaith engagement. Our mission is to encourage students to honor the spiritual dimension of life, to respect religious and cultural differences, to deepen and explore their faith traditions and worldviews, to embrace the present responsibly and the future with hope, and to live the principles they value.
