Welcome to the University Chaplain

The Office of the University Chaplain serves the holistic education of our students by attending to the spiritual and religious formation of the University community.

In collaboration with student leaders, staff, faculty and administrators, we promote a spiritual vision of the way of proceeding set forth by St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.

Embracing our common human dignity created in God's image and likeness, we foster a greater respect for the truth, goodness and grace to be found in a diversity of faith traditions and people of every culture, race, language and economic status.
