51’s Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life seeks to create an inclusive community that celebrates intellectual curiosity about religion and spirituality, nourishes ethical decision-making, cultivates deep spiritual exploration and supports faithful living. We promote moral and ethical leadership development and provide pastoral care and welcome for 51’s religiously diverse community. Grounded in the University’s Methodist heritage, the Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life enhances the educational mission of the university through religious and spiritual programming and services for all students, staff, faculty, and administration.
