What is a Chaplain?

The chaplains:

  • support students, faculty, and staff in their religious and spiritual lives
  • facilitate educational, spiritual, and religious opportunities on campus
  • are available to members of the community as they have personal, social, spiritual, institutional concerns or joys
  • serve the entire campus community regardless of religious and spiritual affiliations or background.
