Protestant and Interfaith Campus Ministry

Rachel DitchWelcome to Campus Ministry at SUNY Cortland.

The Rev. Rachel Ditch is our Protestant Campus Minister and Director of our Interfaith Center. Rachel attended SUNY Cortland as a student, graduating in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Adolescent English Education, and is thrilled to have returned to the Cortland campus as one of your campus ministers. Rachel is ordained in the United Church of Christ and is the pastor and spiritual advisor for students, staff, and faculty of mainline Protestant denominations (i.e. Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, UMC, UCC, etc.). Rachel also believes in Interfaith programming and works to build connections for people of varying traditions. No matter what your faith tradition (including not claiming a faith at all), Rachel would love to meet you and share in conversation about life!

If you are seeking connection to a local faith community, Rachel can help you locate the best fit for your needs.

“I want to be a person who journeys with everyone in this campus community. This is a time in which you are asking big questions and determining who you are in this world, and I am here to talk and listen. Some of us are people of faith, some of us aren’t, and those differences will help us to create a wonderful community where we all belong and have voice. You will see me at events on campus and have an office at the Interfaith Center. Come and see me anytime, I am here for YOU!”
