Harriet came to the University of Edinburgh in 2010 to be its Chaplain and to co-ordinate Chaplaincy work across the institution.
She was previously a university chaplain and tutor in Oxford, and before that a lecturer in theology at the University of Exeter. She greatly values the nurturing of spiritual life and social responsibility in environments of learning, and in contexts where people are being stretched and developed on many different fronts.
Harriet enjoys going to Cornwall with her young family, cycle-touring when she gets the chance, and keeping up with friends.
As well as being an Episcopalian priest, Harriet frequently participates in ecumenical and interfaith talks and initiatives. She writes on fundamentalism, religious knowing and qualities of character, and she serves on theological committees, formerly for the Church of England, and now for the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Harriet is an Honorary Fellow of the School of Divinity here at the University of Edinburgh and recently chaired the Modern Church 2012 Conference 'By whose authority? An interfaith look at women and religious authority'
