This mission of the Office of the Chaplaincy is Inspiring Generous Faith; Engaging the Heart of the University.
The Office of the Chaplaincy consists of five full-time staff members and eighteen affiliated campus ministers. Together, we focus on five strategic goals to advance our mission:
Creating structures of inclusion for the diversity of faith traditions present on campus.
Including our eighteen partner campus ministries more robustly in the mainstream of campus life.
Providing pastoral care to all members of the university community, particularly students.
Developing programming for students to pursue spiritual renewal, reflection, and critical engagement with their own experience and that of others.
Animating conversations of meaning across many lines of difference to cultivate our highest ideals of responsible living and learning.
Some of our yearly highlights include the Pilgrimage program to Israel; our Multifaith Student Council; the Weinstein-Rosenthal Forum on Faith, Ethics, and Global Society; our One Book, One Campus program; our Consider This dinner series; the annual Iftar, Seder, Thanksgiving, and December Candlelight services.
In addition, a wide range of worship and fellowship opportunities are offered such as weekly Catholic Mass; Kairos, a Christian contemplative service; Shabbat services; Muslim prayer; and Zen Meditation. Additional worship and study opportunities are offered through our campus ministry team.
