I am very appreciative of this site as I am exploring various aspects and kinds of buddhist chaplaincy. Are there Buddhist chaplains in academia? Like to know about them and their daily work. Thanks for the Resource Library. Peace & joy

I am studying to become a Buddhist chaplain in hospice / end of life care settings. I currently enjoy a student membership with the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC). If anyone is interested in pastoral resources regarding death and dying, or for working with grief and loss, I am happy to share resources.
There are many Buddhist ministers that have served as chaplains in law enforcement, fire, and with other emergency responders on the local level. Can we include these chaplaincies as well? Thank you.
The International Order of Buddhist Ministers is having an ordination ceremony May 21, 2011 at 230 pm at the Rosemead Buddhist Monastery in the Los Angeles area.
I would like to invite all interested to attend this great event.
I second Monica's request. I would also like a spot for those of us who are starting the process "through other means" ex: I am volunteering as a pastoral care volunteer at a local hospital. The academic portion is put on hold due to family matters but I am working all the other steps necessary to apply to a program. Thanks.
Hi Steve, Can you add a category to the Chaplain Directory for students? I think it might be useful for folks who are looking to start studying for chaplaincy to be able to find people who are already students at the institutions they are looking into. I've had a few people get in touch with me precisely for this purpose, so I figure it might helpful to make myself available through multiple channels. But I don't want to claim more credentials than I already have, such as a degree or CPE training. If that's possible, I'd love it. Thanks!
Welcome. What do you think?
