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 eight different traditions: Africana Spirituality, Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, and Protestant. Each of them is trained to offer support to anyone, regardless of religious, spiritual, and philosophical identity. You might seek out a chaplain if you are exploring spirituality, seeking the wisdom of tradition, or needing to connect with someone during a difficult time.
The University Chaplaincy is also home to more than eleven student-run religious and philosophical communities, including 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.
This week, you will be receiving the Spiritual Interest Survey, which is an opportunity for you to share how the University Chaplaincy can better support you. Complete the survey for a chance to win an Apple Watch!
