The Place & Purpose of Chaplaincy in Higher Education


Opening plenary with Joanne Berger-Sweeney, President of Trinity College, and Joel N. Lohr, President of Hartford Seminary.


Additional plenary sessions will feature Cornel West, Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, and Ingrid Mattson.


Hosted by Trinity College and Hartford Seminary in collaboration with partners from Wesleyan University, Yale University, Amherst College, Williams College, and Howard University. 


The spiritual practices, religious identities, and cultural heritages of college and university students in the United States are increasingly diverse. Also increasing are the number of students who do not affiliate or identify with a religious tradition. Yet students continue to place value on spiritual care and engage in moral reasoning and ethical action in their daily lives as they shape and express their particular worldviews. Higher education professionals embrace the opportunities and confront the challenges of this environment every day. The February 2020 Annual Conference of the National Association of College and University Chaplains invites thoughtful consideration of the place and purpose of chaplaincy in higher education.


Please join us in Hartford. Renew relationship and discover new partnerships. Enjoy the good company of colleagues in the field. We welcome you, your voice, your worldview, and your perspective on the place and purpose of chaplaincy in higher education.


The conference will take place at the Connecticut Convention Center, with visits to Trinity College and to the Hartford Seminary. Optional excursions will take place on the morning of Monday, February 10.  The opening plenary will begin later that afternoon.  Self-directed dinner on the town takes place on Tuesday evening. The Connecticut Convention Center is located at 100 Columbus Boulevard, Hartford. 


Accommodations are available at the Hartford Marriott Downtown. Located in the Front Street District of Hartford, the Marriott Hartford Downtown overlooks the Connecticut River and is interconnected with the Connecticut Convention Center.
