Office of the Chaplain

The Office of the Chaplain fosters and enriches the religious and spiritual life of the Rhodes College community. You can contact the Chaplain for advising, pastoral care, conversation, meditation tips, story-sharing, life planning, or to discuss your spiritual and religious needs. Chaplain Beatrix is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) who is committed to serving all Rhodes College students (meaning people from every religious tradition and people who do not claim a religious tradition). She looks forward to getting to know you! 
For more information, contact:
Rev. Beatrix Weil

Chaplain Beatrix is a “safe zone,” which means she is trained in supporting people of the LGBTQIA+ community. She would love to meet with you in her office, over tea, on the basketball court, or out on campus for a walk! To make an appointment, email

Chaplain Beatrix is not a “mandatory reporter.” This means that, by and large, you can share anything with her and she will maintain your confidentiality. She is required to report situations in which she has concerns about someone’s immediate safety. Rhodes College’s Title IX contact person is Inez Warner. Contact Inez if you experience or become aware of a situation involving gender-based or sex-based discrimination or assault. You can always reach out to Chaplain Beatrix in these situations as well.
