Spiritual and Religious Life on Campus
Elizabethtown College supports the free expression of spirituality and/or religion for all individuals and groups. Our office strives to create a vital and vibrant atmosphere for spiritual growth and religious conversation.
The Office of the Chaplain/Director of Spiritual and Religious Life seeks to foster an environment where the Christian spiritual heritage of the College (Church of the Brethren) engages in dialogue with other Christian traditions, as well as the diversity of world’s religious traditions.
Our office, as part of the Center for Student Involvement, provides a number of ways for students to become engaged:
