Protestant and Interfaith Campus Ministry

Welcome to Campus Ministry at SUNY Cortland.

The Rev. Barbara Rhudy is our interim Protestant campus minister and director of the Interfaith Center. Barbara has a master's degree in counselor education from NC State University, and a master of divinity from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, where she focused on pastoral care as well as spirituality and the arts. Ordained in the United Church of Christ after serving as a chaplain in hospital, eldercare and hospice settings, she moved to the Homer/Cortland area in 2009 to serve as the associate pastor of Homer Congregational United Church of Christ. 

Barbara is grateful for the opportunity to serve as one of your campus ministers. She is the pastor and spiritual advisor for students, staff and faculty of mainline Protestant denominations (i.e. Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, UMC, UCC, etc.). Like her predecessors, she is committed to interfaith programming, believing God’s love knows no boundaries, including those of you who do not claim any faith tradition. As her denomination proclaims, “No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”

“Please know you are welcome to come by and talk about questions that are on your heart. Normally I’d say, leave me a note or leave a message on the answering machine 607-753-1002, and we will find a time, but during this time when we are all staying at home due to the coronavirus, it is best that you email me at barbara.rhudy@cortland.edu." — Rev. Barbara Rhudy
