Ministry in Higher Education

The Program Group on Ministry in Higher Education serves campuses within the Diocese of Los Angeles by building community among students, faculty and staff. Weekly worship, social gatherings, ecumenical outreach, and various other activities and events are coordinated through the campus chaplaincies. A number of congregations also extend parish-based ministries to neighboring campuses among the more than 80 institutions of higher education within the Diocese of Los Angeles.

University Chaplaincies

Chaplains provide students and faculty with resources for Christian community-building, ecumenical outreach, worship and more. While an Episcopal presence is maintained at several major university campuses in the area, there are more than 80 institutions of higher learning within the Diocese. Therefore, several congregations in the Diocese extend various parish-based ministries to neighboring campuses, while major programs are coordinated by the chaplaincies listed below.
