The Office of the Chaplain supports the academic mission of the University by facilitating and encouraging initiatives concerned with the moral, ethical, and spiritual dimensions of university life. The Spiritual and Religious Center (SPARC) provides space for regular prayer, scripture study and meditation sessions for individuals and groups. Spaces can be reserved in advance or used on a drop-in basis. Our Office serves and supports a wide range of student organizations, fellowships and religious communities on our campus. We also develop programming designed to improve interfaith understanding and build meaningful, collaborative relationships across religious difference. And our Chaplains are always nearby to offer support or space to talk.
