Making Interreligious Chaplaincy Education Meaningfully Inclusive

Room 605
Description: 
In the U.S. professional chaplaincy ethics, according to the Association of Professional Chaplains, competent chaplaincy includes treating all persons with “dignity and respect” by serving “all persons without discrimination regardless of religion, faith group, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, age, or disability.” If inclusion is already the ethos of modern-day chaplaincy in the U.S., how do Next Generations' master’s level students take inclusion to the next level? In this panel, professors, students, and alumni from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, USA, share their experiences learning from one another, their challenges in examining their own biases, the insights they have learned from students with different worldviews, and their growing competencies around interreligious chaplaincy education.
