We are the hub of religious, spiritual, ethical, and cultural life for all members of the Tufts community. We welcome you, just as you are.

We are here for you if are seeking resources in a particular faith tradition, craving more depth in your daily life, or needing a caring presence in a difficult moment. Our chaplains work with seven different worldview communities, and are trained to respectfully support anyone in our Tufts community. Getting involved at the University Chaplaincy might be participating in worship or meditation, attending a concert or lecture on spiritual life, engaging in social justice and service, or checking in with a chaplain about how it's going for you – and much more. We will be so glad to get to know you, and be changed by your presence.

Below are easy ways to access more information about our weekly gatherings, our chaplains' contact information, and students' insights on their University Chaplaincy experiences. Please reach out with any questions, concerns, and ideas you have - we will be so glad to connect with you.

Sincerely,

The Tufts University Chaplaincy Team
