Meet the University Chaplaincy

The Tufts University Chaplaincy is a dynamic hub supporting religious, spiritual, ethical, and cultural life for all members of the Tufts community. The mission of the department is to:
The chaplains represent eight different traditions: Africana Spirituality, Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, and Protestant. Each member of the team is trained to offer support to anyone, regardless of religious, spiritual, and philosophical identity. You might seek out a conversation with a chaplain if you are exploring spirituality or faith, have a question about your identity, or want to check in with someone during a difficult time. The Contact a Chaplain form is one easy way to connect.
The University Chaplaincy is also home to more than 11 student-run religious and philosophical communities representing traditions from across the globe.
You can learn more about the religious and philosophical communities on campus and connect to the office through their website, Facebook, or Instagram.
This week, you will be receiving the Spiritual Interest Survey. This is an opportunity to share more about yourself with the University Chaplaincy. Complete the survey for a chance to win an Apple Watch!
