Office of the Chaplains

Religious and Spiritual Wellbeing

An important part of your college experience is tending to your holistic wellbeing: spiritual, physical, intellectual, relational, and emotional. Though we specialize in the spiritual, our team in the Office of the Chaplains is here to support you as a whole person.

Spiritual Wellbeing Includes: 
  • developing and sustaining a connection to something larger than yourself (might be a deity/God or religious leader, sacred texts, ethical values, the natural world, community, etc.)
  • making meaning and finding a sense of purpose in your life
  • engaging in practices that help you be fully present to your authentic self and to others

We can help...

Connect

  • with peers who share your spiritual or religious identity
  • with peers from different spiritual and religious backgrounds
  • with other resources on campus for various facets of wellbeing

Support

  • your wellbeing through individual appointments with a chaplain
  • your spiritual exploration and specific religious practices and holidays
  • your use of the Multifaith Center, Christ Chapel, and other gathering spaces on campus

Develop

  • learn how to discover and reflect on your sense of meaning and purpose
  • learn interfaith leadership skills to build bridges between people who hold diverse identities (religious, spiritual, racial, cultural, etc)
  • learn practices and habits to enhance your spiritual wellbeing
COVID-19 is growing our creative capacities!
Many of our programs and events are happening virtually this fall. Appointments with chaplains can take place virtually or in-person with appropriate procautions and social distancing.

The New Normal. What does that even mean? This semester, we will be exploring how we find God when everything feels like it's falling apart. 

Come to worship, come to hear the simultaneously challenging and comforting gospel, and, of course, come for community.
