Welcome to the Scott Center

The Charles P. Scott Center for Spiritual and Religious Life plays a vital role in the campus life at Middlebury College. Named in honor of the Rev. Charles P. Scott, who served as Middlebury’s chaplain from 1951 to his retirement in 1986, and who remained associated with the College until his death in 2004, the center is home to the Chaplain’s Office and works closely with student religious organizations.

The center’s mission is a broad one. It actively promotes spiritual and religious programs; integrates its work into the intellectual life of the College; creates opportunities to join together in efforts that center on issues of justice, honesty, integrity, peace, and concern for the marginalized; offers pastoral care and outreach to the campus community; and fosters an atmosphere of personal warmth and community.

We are located in Hathaway House, where we offer a range of comforts and services to students, faculty, and staff.

Our doors are open to every member of the community.
