The Chaplaincy at Bard is committed to helping students, staff, and faculty explore and develop their spiritual identities. The College belongs to the Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion, but that membership does not limit the scope of religious interests on our campus. At Bard, the diverse perspectives of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism are not only studied, but practiced.
The Chaplaincy is constituted of seven college chaplains:
The Rev. Dr. Bruce Chilton - Chaplain of the College
The Rev. Ginger Grab - Assistant Chaplain
Usman Khan - Muslim Chaplain
Nicholas Lewis - Community Life Chaplain
Father Joseph Mali - Catholic Chaplain
David Nelson - Campus Rabbi
Tatjana Myoko von Prittwitz und Gaffron - Buddhist Associate Chaplain
Chaplains are available for pastoral care and counseling with students, staff, and faculty, and offer study on a formal and informal basis. The Chaplaincy also supports student organizations such as the Jewish Students Organization, Muslim Students Organization, Christian Fellowship, Buddhist Meditation group, Sanskrit group, and Catholic community. We help students organize and celebrate regular holy observances and develop programming for the campus at large. Worship services for various faith traditions take place weekly. The Chaplaincy also coordinates and participates in a series of ecumenical events during the school year.
