Spiritual Life at Tufts

The Tufts University Chaplaincy is a dynamic hub supporting religious, spiritual, ethical, and cultural life for the Tufts community on all of our campuses. The chaplaincy provides pastoral care, supports religious and philosophical communities, educates about spiritual and ethical issues, and promotes multifaith engagement within Tufts' tradition of progressive thought in education.

The chaplaincy includes multiple chaplains and staff who collectively support over 20 campus religious and philosophical communities and offer additional tradition-specific and multifaith programming and services university-wide. The department also manages the care and use of sacred spaces including Goddard Chapel, the Granoff Family Hillel Center, and the Interfaith Center on Tufts' Medford/Somerville campus.

The University Chaplaincy honors and promotes Tufts’ Universalist heritage and spirit. They are committed to offering opportunities for all at Tufts to experience a rich inner life, dynamic devotion, critical spiritual thought, deep ethical reflection, meaningful community, and active and constructive engagement with the pressing issues and needs of our time.
