I’m excited by the opportunity to share findings from our new research study into the role and impact of university chaplains in the UK, so that our research evidence about the diverse ways chaplains contribute to their universities can shape the future leadership of higher education chaplaincy in the UK and internationally.

My analyses of religion in (mostly) European societies include careful attention to Chaplaincy. Hence my commitment to the Liberty, Legacy, Leadership conference, encouraged all the more by the geographical, disciplinary and confessional diversity of the delegates.

I am interested in contributing to 'Liberty, Legacy, Leadership' for Chaplaincy staff in Higher Education because the work that chaplains do brings to life the research that I and my colleagues have been conducting for the past 35 years showing that faith can make a real difference in a person’s life and health.

What interests me in 'Liberty, Legacy, Leadership' is the opportunity to share stories of courage, learning and spirituality with colleagues from diverse national and religious traditions. Being together, exploring the human condition in light of changing borders and belongings excites me, as our traditions have much in common and much to share with each other. The Irish story of conflict, peace, negotiation and community has much to share with and learn from other global zones, and I look forward to the opportunity immensely.

I am interested in how people make meaning outside of traditional religious institutions, and chaplains and chaplaincies are already ‘out there’. Like sociologists, chaplains do their work in the midst of society; I always find we have a great deal in common and much to learn from one another.
