Spiritual Life at Bard

Spiritual Life at Bard College actively promotes and develops a richer understanding of what we believe and how to use our beliefs to transform the world. Through the Chaplaincy department we offer spiritual support for all students and members of the Bard community.  We provide ways to explore faith academically,  often with a focus on social issues, and always with an emphasis on diversity and openness.  Each chaplain also offers religious services and/or opportunities to deepen students' faith and build community.  We are also available for pastoral counseling and conversation.

Meet our Chaplains

The Chaplaincy has three  chaplains: an Episcopal priest, a rabbi, a Buddhist chaplain as well as an Advisor to Muslim students. The clergy offer study on a formal and informal basis with members of the college community who are interested in learning more about their own traditions or the faith traditions of others. Each chaplain is available for pastoral care with students, administration, staff, and faculty.
