The chaplain coordinates and directs spiritual life activities at Lakeland and, as an ex officio member of the faculty, works at the intersection of academic and student affairs. The chaplain is responsible for identifying and supporting opportunities for spiritual reflection and exploration for the Lakeland community, providing leadership to the Spiritual Life Council, engaging in outreach activities as deemed appropriate, and providing individual pastoral care for students, faculty, and staff. As the Ulrich Ethicist in Residence, the chaplain also is responsible for providing curricular and co-curricular training in ethics to the campus community as part of the Ulrich Center for Philosophy, Ethics, and Christian Thought. This is a full time, ongoing position with a 10-month annual contract that includes one course assignment each academic term.
