College & University Chaplaincy in the 21st Century

A Multifaith Look at the Practice of Ministry on Campuses Across America
  • By Rena S. Blumenthal
  • By Lucy A. Forster-Smith
  • By Janet M. Cooper Nelson

The first comprehensive resource for chaplains and campus ministers of all faith traditions--a vital resource for ministry in multifaith and secular contexts.

Caregiver, educator, trustee of institutional traditions, public religious voice and, occasionally, prophet: in an increasingly multifaith, multicultural, global world, the role of the college or university chaplain has changed. This book examines experiences and perspectives that arise at the intersection of religious practice, distinct campus culture, student counseling and the secular context of the modern academic institution.

Contributors who are actively engaged in the work of college chaplaincy--from educational institutions as diverse as Stanford University, Williams College, Jesuit-affiliated Creighton University and Louisiana's historically black Dillard University, and from many faith traditions--explore the practice, theology and joys of campus ministry and the chaplain's calling to support, challenge, stir the imagination of and address this generation's urgent longing for connection and meaning.
