Guidelines for Affiliate Ministers

 

As Juniata College prides itself in being a community encompassing individuals from all walks of life including but not limited to faith, religions, or cultures, our focus is to provide support for all individuals within the realm of their exploration of life choices.  Because of our commitment to community, Juniata College has one College Chaplain appointed by the Board of Trustees.  This individual is responsible for the overall spiritual direction of the campus community.

 

Individuals representing other faiths, denominations, or religious are welcome to participate within the campus community providing they following the guidelines set forth by Juniata College.

All those seeking affiliation are to be familiar with and know the policies, guidelines and procedures for student organizations and Juniata College.  By signing below, you agree that you have read the Pathfinder (http://services.juniata.edu/pathfinder/) and Student Organization Handbook (http://services.juniata.edu/osa/handbook.html) and that you agree to the following:

 

By seeking affiliation, all individuals affirm the religious pluralistic character of the campus community and agree to respect the faith traditions of all persons by refraining from door to door solicitations in residence halls and offices, or seeking to advance the interest of their denomination or organization in ways that would be considered harassment of others.
