The University Chaplaincy: Creating Meaning at Puget Sound

Welcome to the University Chaplaincy!  We offer support, care, connection, and challenge to all students, faculty, and staff – inclusive of all spiritual and religious backgrounds, as well as those who find meaning in other approaches to the world. The Chaplaincy helps members of the Puget Sound community to find and create meaning during their time studying, living, and working at Puget Sound.

As we work to support students, faculty, and staff of all, no, and any spiritualities or faiths, the Chaplaincy is explicitly committed to being an affirming, inclusive space, with specific commitments to LGBTQ+ inclusion, students/faculty/staff of color, 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.

In this time when so much is remote or online, please check out the links on this page to get more information about our events and resources.  Some of the things on offer for Spring 2021 include:

  • online and in-person spiritual or religious gatherings
  • short-term conversations about interfaith cooperation and social justice
  • special speakers, concerts, and more

As a strictly confidential resource for students, faculty, and staff, University Chaplain Dave Wright is available to meet with all members of the campus community for conversation, reflection, exploration, support, and more.  You can also email to set up an appointment.
