The Diocese of Edmonton University Chaplaincy supports the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Alberta in their spiritual growth and development. The scope of the university chaplaincy goes back more than 50 years and extends from the U of A, to NAIT, to MacEwan University and beyond.
