As the center of religious life in the University since its inception in 1894, we celebrate the Chapel’s enduring legacy of developing spiritually grounded leaders for America and the global community.

Our Vision


Time has affirmed that what happens at Howard University has implications for the nation and the global community. As you explore our history and current activities we hope that you will share our excitement about the broad network of campus ministries and Chapel programs.

Through a growing presence of diversity on our campus, we are working to promote interfaith dialogue and cooperation that develops leaders with a deepened understanding and respect for diverse faiths and cultures.

Our Mission

The Office of the Dean of the Chapel is committed to empowering leadership development, engaging the global community, and enhancing the Howard University legacy of Truth and Service.
