Get to know us and join us!
The Tufts University Chaplaincy is a dynamic hub supporting religious, spiritual, ethical, and cultural life for all members of the Tufts community. We provide pastoral care, support religious and philosophical communities, educate about spiritual and ethical issues in society and the world, and promote multifaith engagement.
Reporting to the President, the University Chaplain leads the University Chaplaincy team, which currently includes four associate chaplains (Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, and Protestant); administrative, program, and music staff; chaplain interns; and student workers.
The University Chaplaincy works with roughly 20 campus religious and philosophical communities that offer over 18 weekly gatherings and many special programs. Beyond its work supporting these communities, the University Chaplaincy offers its own tradition-specific and interfaith programming and services for the whole university. The department also manages the care and use of Goddard Chapel, the Granoff Family Hillel Center, and the Interfaith Center.
The University Chaplaincy advances the values of Tufts' Universalist founders, welcoming all and promoting Tufts' commitments to diversity and inclusion, access and equity, environmentalism, peacemaking, and social justice.
