Welcome Message from the Director,
The Chaplains from Wesleyan’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life have been appointed by the University to ensure and promote the spiritual and religious well-being of the campus community. We do this by providing leadership, counseling, and programming that promotes holistic student development and by nurturing many diverse and vibrant religious communities at Wesleyan.
We are here to help students, staff, faculty, and alumni:
- grow in their own tradition as well learn more about other religious paths and faiths.
- find a safe and confidential environment to discuss personal or existential issues or difficulties.
- plan life cycle celebrations or rituals.
While each one of us participates in and leads worship and study in her/his own religious traditions on a weekly basis, the chaplains also work together to sponsor several educational, multi-faith, and social programs during the year, such as Soul Matters and our “What Matters to Me and Why” dinner and discussion series.
The Chaplains are committed to welcoming students of all genders and sexual identities, of all secular and religious traditions, and from all cultural backgrounds. Please feel free to e-mail/call us to schedule a visit or attend one of our programs.
The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is located at 169 High Street. A lounge is available for group meetings and quiet study.
Rabbi David Leipziger Teva, Director,
Office of Religious and Spiritual Life
