Chaplaincy Services

The University is committed to meeting students’ spiritual needs and offering pastoral care through the Chaplaincy Office. The office offers spiritual guidance to students through the religious associations and their patrons registered by the University, which are CU, EUMO, YCS and SDA. Other services under chaplaincy include conducting worship services, organizing annual interfaith services and coordinating spiritual activities at the university. The students’ body also elects, through a competitive process, denominational representatives who act as liaison between the office of the Dean of Students and the students in matters of ministry. The service also ensures that all religious groups have appropriate and adequate areas of worship.
