About us

Augustana Chaplaincy is an integral part of the student experience. Rooted in the Lutheran tradition, it is ecumenical in scope as it accompanies the community on a journey of educating the whole person - body, mind and spirit.

Students of all faiths and those with no faith background are welcome to be a part of and contribute to the Chaplaincy program.

Chaplaincy at Augustana has three components:

  1. It provides community building activities for all.
  2. It upholds multi-faith celebrations. Students are encouraged to contact the Chaplaincy team if there is a tradition of any spirituality that they would like to see celebrated on campus.
  3. It provides a place of Christian worship and community.

We extend a warm welcome to all students and uphold a safe space for all sexual orientations and gender identities to be celebrated.
