The Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life provides opportunities to explore and practice religion, faith, and spirituality–and to more deeply understand one’s personal values and social responsibility–via educational programming, encounters with various faith perspectives, and engagement with religious and spiritual communities. The office welcomes and serves all students, faculty, and staff, and provides an intellectual home and ethical resource for anyone in the Vanderbilt community seeking to clarify, explore, and deepen understanding of their lives and/or faith.

Recognizing the importance of exploring one’s faith in community, the office facilitates opportunities for individuals of a shared faith to worship/practice their particular religious tradition. Whether guided by one of the office’s affiliated chaplains or a student-run religious organization, these groups foster a sense of community and common values.
