AJRCA Partners with the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab to Improve Chaplaincy Education

Rabbi Rochelle Robins Vice President AJRCA, Dean of the Chaplaincy School

Earlier this year, Rabbi Rochelle Robins, AJRCA Vice President and Dean of the Chaplaincy School, represented the Academy among an incredibly diverse group of educators, chaplains, and chaplaincy administrators at the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab’s (CIL) opening conference in Boston. The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab sparks practical innovation in spiritual care in many ways, and we’re grateful to see of all the progress they’ve made since launching in October 2018.

The Lab is part of the the Educating Effective Chaplains project, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and based at Boston University, It offers free webinars, resources on chaplaincy in many sectorsnetworking opportunities, a growing research bibliography, and more.

Said Robins about her experience with the CIL thus far, “The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab is the most thoughtful and forward thinking project and collaboration in the world of spiritual care today. It is an honor to explore chaplaincy in its present forms and to envision/create future directions with skilled and compassionate leaders in the field.”
