Campus Ministries

Campus Ministries strive to promote understanding and appreciation of religious diversity and serve the spiritual wellness and religious needs of the campus community

A variety of faith communities are represented on campus through support staff assigned to the university. Our campus ministers advise religious student organizations as well as provide personal ministry in counseling, theological discussions, and support students in other areas. In addition, several campus ministers lead discussions on contemporary issues and sponsor guest speakers or social events.
