Who We Are

The Chaplaincy has on staff three college chaplains: an Episcopal chaplain, a Rabbi, and a Buddhist chaplain. 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.
