Interfaith Chapel/Chaplains - Everyone
Chaplains are available for counseling and advising on a variety of emotional and spiritual issues, including grief, loss, depression, sexuality, relationships, academic anxieties, family conflicts. Confidential, one on one support is available to students in times of stress, need, spiritual or emotional crisis.
The University has twelve religious or spiritual groups or communities currently affiliated with the Interfaith Chapel: Jewish, Christian (Protestant, and Catholic), Muslim, and Buddhist traditions and can help connect students to community resources in Hindu, Baha'i, Sikh, Mormon and other religious traditions.
The Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center (BIC) is a joint venture of the Office of the Dean of Students and the David T. Kearns Center. It exists to promote cultural awareness and engagement; educate on issues of identity, culture, and diversity; and provide avenues for intersection and opportunities for collaboration.
The BIC works closely with students, staff, faculty, and offices across campus to foster a collaborative environment throughout the year. Staff develops resources that complement and supplement curricular offerings, explore the intersections of identity, build intercultural competence, and promote and encourage cultural understanding and appreciation among the campus community, while also providing opportunities for education and dialogue on topics such as race, religion, LGBTQ issues, privilege, and bias-related incidents.
Students can use the intercultural lounge and LGBTQ resource area, which is an ideal location for studying, checking out books and videos, engaging in discussions, and as a community gathering space.
