Spiritual care is a type of counseling provided by professional chaplains and trained spiritual leaders. It involves nonjudgmental, compassionate listening that welcomes people to share their joys, concerns, and hopes in the context of their full humanity, and for many, their philosophy, religion, or spirituality.

At the Tufts University Chaplaincy, our chaplains are:

  • Confidential resources
  • Open and affirming of LGBTQIA identities
  • Available to anyone in the Tufts community, regardless of religious or philosophical beliefs

Please find the answers to commonly asked questions below, and you can always email the University Chaplaincy to learn more. You can download a resource about spiritual care here.
