Spiritual and Moral Values

The philosophy of the University Memorial Chapel is that education should embrace the importance of the student’s spiritual values. Appreciation of spiritual and moral values informs the life of the truly educated person. When this happens a moral context is given to what one does with the knowledge one has gained. The Chapel exists to give direction to the implementation of spiritual and religious values in character formation. With this direction, life decisions are properly grounded.

The University Memorial Chapel exists also as a continuing symbol of the relevance of moral values in higher education. As such, it is recognized not only by the University, but also by the community at large. Its facilities provide space for a variety of activities for students, faculty, and for various organizations and individuals in the Baltimore area.
