What Guides Our Work?

Each affiliated chaplaincy is guided by its own sacred texts as well as other covenants made with their sponsoring religious organization or denomination.  CURW is also guided by documents that convey important principles.  Our primary document is the University's mission statement.  Other supportive documents include:

  • Religious Accommodation Policy
    Cornell University has an enduring commitment to supporting equality of employment opportunity by affirming the values of diversity and inclusiveness. This commitment includes embracing religious diversity. As part of this commitment, the university will make good faith efforts to provide a reasonable accommodation of an employee's sincerely-held religious belief, unless the university believes such an accommodation would create an undue hardship or is contrary to the university's commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.
