The Chapel of Meditation is the realization of a dream begun in 1968 when the Eastern Kentucky University Alumni Association adopted the Century Fun Project to finance a non-denominational chapel. The chapel stands as a testimonial of the love and devotion of the alumni, faculty, students, and friends, a fit to commemorate the 100th anniversary of higher education on the Eastern Kentucky University campus.

The chapel is non-sectarian and is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the University for meditation, prayer, and spiritual reflection. The chapel is also used for several other events such as:

  • Weddings
  • Memorial services
  • Sorority and fraternity events
  • Religious organization events and services
  • Academic department meetings
  • Honor Society events
  • Athletic events

The University Chaplain’s office is located in the basement of the chapel. The Chaplain coordinates the various activities of the chapel and is available to perform weddings. The Chaplain also attends to students, staff and faculty with questions about spiritual matters or spirituality. Besides providing a peaceful and serene setting for prayer and meditation, the chapel is used to house various student organization meetings and services, weddings, and annual memorial services.
