Religious Life Advisers

The Chaplaincy has welcomed several volunteer advisers to help guide and encourage members of the Trinity University community in their faith. Appointed and supported by their own religious student organizations, they serve particular religious communities on campus.

Chapel and Spiritual Life Fellows

The Chapel and Spiritual Life (CSL) Fellows program, started in Fall 2019, is a multi-faith team of student leaders selected for their interest and skills in helping cultivate the rich spiritual life and practices of the Trinity community. The program serves to engage students more directly in the design, planning, and implementation of CSL initiatives.

Focus Groups

Each of the nine CSL Fellows is focused in one of three areas:

  • Multi-faith Programming
  • Spiritual Life Programming
  • Christian Life Programming

Teams based on these three themes collaborate to imagine a new and integrated approach to helping members of the Trinity community cultivate their spiritual and faith journeys.
