The university chaplaincy is here to help you create meaning during your time studying, living, and working at Puget Sound. We are committed to being an affirming, inclusive space, with specific commitments to LGBTQ+ inclusion, our BIPOC communities, those who are immigrants and refugees, and more. We also advocate for growing into a Campus of Compassion, centered in values of equity, care, and growth for all members of the community.
As a strictly confidential resource for students, faculty, and staff, University Chaplain Dave Wright ’96 is available to meet with all members of the campus community for conversation, reflection, exploration, support, and more.
The Swope Endowed Lectureship on Ethics, Religion, Faith, and Values was established in honor of Jane Hammer Swope and brings guest lecturers to campus twice a year to promote broad discussions, critical thinking, and ethical inquiry.
Kilworth Chapel is used by on- and off-campus communities and groups for a variety of events including weddings, memorials, musical performances, classes, plays, lectures, and spiritual services.
