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. They:
The chaplains represent six different traditions: Buddhist, Catholic, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, and Protestant. Each of them is trained to offer support to anyone, if you are having a hard time and seeking spiritual exploration or just want a listening ear.
The Chaplaincy is also home to more than eleven student-run religious and philosophical communities, including the Hindu Student Council, Tufts Unitarian Universalists (TU3) and the interfaith Community of Faith, Exploration, and Engagement (COFFEE).
You can learn more about the religious and philosophical communities on campus and connect to the office through their website, Facebook, or Instagram.
Don’t forget to complete the Spiritual Interest Survey in your new student checklist! The survey is a chance for you to share how the University Chaplaincy can better support you.
