The National Campus Ministry Association’s 2015 Annual Conference was held July 15-17, 2015 at Albion College in Albion, Michigan. Over the course of three days, campus ministers from several denominations, traditions, and religious groups gathered to learn, to plan, and to support each other in their work. We are grateful to President Mauri Ditzler, Chaplain Daniel McQuown, and the staff of Albion College for their hospitality.
