When to Contact a Chaplain
Campus chaplains and religious advisors are trained religious professionals and are available to speak to you about topics which include, but are not limited to, the following:
To discuss faith choices, when you no longer know what you believe.
If swamped by guilt feelings and you need a word of support and forgiveness.
When you experience a loss and need to talk about death and dying.
When someone at home is hospitalized or seriously ill.
To discuss sexual harassment confidentially, to report or not to report.
When you feel lonely, or homesick, and want some understanding company.
To talk about religion or religious life. For questions about cults or extreme religious behavior.
To air identity quandaries with someone who has been through it.
Just to talk, about anything large or small.
To contact a campus chaplain or religious advisor, please see our staff page.
