Office of the Chaplains

We provide the Colgate community with a dynamic, friendly, and supportive place in which to seek answers to life’s biggest questions. We encourage students to become the best versions of themselves, growing as people of integrity and commitment.

Campus chaplains are trained religious professionals. In addition to offering pastoral counseling, we serve the greater Colgate Community regardless of religious affiliation. Campus chaplains are a confidential resource.
