December 16, 2020
Postsecondary institutions need to support chaplains, who support the heart and soul of higher education, writes Reverend Brian E Konkol. The author explains how chaplains contribute to postsecondary education through exploring and honouring identity, creating and cultivating community, and illuminating and igniting purpose. Konkol further describes how chaplains can help students to better navigate the complexities of their lives, as well as the challenges of upheaval and crisis. “By supporting chaplains, we can more fully educate the whole student, both inside and outside the classroom. We can ensure that our graduates will not only do good but also be well.,” writes Knokol. Inside Higher Ed (International)
