The office of the university chaplain exists primarily to provide pastoral care and serve as a spiritual resource to the University community. Therefore, the chaplain is a resource to departments and administration, faculty and students to address spiritual needs on both individual and institutional levels. In terms of pastoral care, the chaplain offers support, prayer, consolation, and spiritual guidance to administration, faculty, staff, and students. Situations that call for pastoral care and visitation can include personal illness, death or illness of a family member, and personal and family crises. To this end the chaplain works with the deans of each school of the University and other key administrators to identify needs and appropriate avenues for pastoral care. Because the Chaplain's Office serves the entire University it provides a tie that binds the community together that is central to the University of Zimbabwe’s mission.
