University Chaplains

Each of the University Chaplains comes from a particular religious tradition but is available to members of the community from any tradition. They are ordained in good standing in their traditions and have been invited to serve the Boston University community in all of its rich religious diversity. The University Chaplains serve on the Boston University Religious Life Council, the advisory body to the Dean of Marsh Chapel for policy and oversight of religious life across the university. A complete list of recognized religious life student groups at Boston University, including those that do not have a university chaplain, can be found on the Student Activities Office website.

NOTE: If this is an emergency or you are in crisis, please contact 911 or a crisis hotline such as the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.

Spiritual leaders from other faith traditions, such as Shaykh Harun Spevack¬†of ISBU, are also available to students, faculty, and staff. These “campus ministers” are not full time staff members or confidential resources, but serve as important supports for the religious communities of BU.
