Kathy Schnurr


Kathy Schnurr has served in the chaplaincy of Johns Hopkins University Religious and Spiritual Life since 2002. She is a Protestant Christian lay woman with over 15 years of experience in ministry in higher education. Kathy’s ultimate goal is to participate in creating a campus environment that engenders the flourishing of the fullness of human dignity for all. She works to achieve this through offering opportunities for healthy religious practice rooted in our own particular religious traditions and spiritual paths while cultivating skills to engage with mutual respect and regard across our differences. Kathy received her undergraduate degree in Social Work with an emphasis on Education from the University of Iowa and her graduate degree in Theology from St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute of Theology. Prior to her time at Johns Hopkins, Kathy worked in various capacities in community-based organizations in Baltimore City serving our most vulnerable citizens. Kathy is a past president of the National Association of College and University Chaplains (NACUC) and currently serves on the board of the Association of College and University Religious Affairs (ACURA).
