At the Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS), students are encouraged to espouse their religion of choice freely and to nurture their spiritual welfare. Helping them find their spiritual way is the responsibility of the university Chaplain. This is one of three offices—including the Registrar and the Director of students—that oversees the welfare of students. Indeed, the chaplain reports to the Director of students.
The chaplain’s main responsibility is to provide moral and spiritual support to students and/or staff. This is achieved in a variety of ways, including counselling students and staff regarding their faith and spiritual life. This may even involve holding daily devotions and presiding over special ceremonies.
Also, to ensure ecumenical harmony, the chaplain is responsible for coordinating the religious services of the various groups on campus in liaison with student leaders. The chaplain also serves as a link between the students and university management in matters relating to religion and morals. It is also the responsibility of the chaplain to advise management on the same.
