Henry Luce Foundation Grant Awarded to ACPE

In its recent grant cycle, the Directors of the Henry Luce Foundation approved a 3-year grant of $275,000 to ACPE, Inc. to support the assessment of healthcare chaplaincy education.  In this project, Assessing & Reimaging Chaplaincy Education – The Case of Healthcare, ACPE will work with Wendy Cadge (Brandeis University) and George Fitchett (Rush University Medical Center) to investigate the pedagogical and theological foundations of chaplaincy education in healthcare and develop a strategic conversation with key stakeholders about its future. It is premised on the idea that the educational bases for chaplaincy education are several decades out of date, and that chaplains may be even more in demand in coming years as fewer people belong to religious organizations and can, therefore, turn to local religious leaders in the midst of health crises.

As part of this grant, ACPE is seeking a Research Administrative Coordinator. Details available at this link.
