Resources for Students, Staff, and Faculty

The health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty are of paramount importance; therefore, the HDS campus is currently closed. Anyone who needs access to campus buildings or who will be working on campus must follow the current re-entry procedures (PDF).

Student Resources

For Current Students: While the Offices of Student Life, Religious and Spiritual Life, and Career Services are working remotely, the areas in which they serve and support students are still functioning. All staff members are available to connect via email, phone, or Zoom to retain our collective sense of connection and care.

Student events, community gatherings, practices, and services:

  • Reach out to Katie Caponera if you are interested creating an event. 
  • For spiritual gatherings, connect with Chaplain Kerry Maloney to explore creative and meaningful online methods for practice, gathering, and ritual. 
  • Connect with HDSSA if there are specific questions or ideas you have for community development. 

Academic, personal, and/or medical need:          

Stay connected with community updates, resources, and virtual event opportunities on the HDS Student Life, HDS Student Association, and HDS Religious and Spiritual Life Instagram accounts. Weekly updates will also be sent to current students through the HDS Community Bulletin and Office of Chaplain & RSL Email Digest.

The Office of Career Services will also continue to offer individual meetings to aid current students with job search strategies and career discernment. To request a meeting please send a note to and/or attend virtual events publicized via the HDS Career Connections newsletter. Updates can also be found on your homepage on the Hired Career Management and Jobs System.
