Daniel Heischman:
College Chaplain,
Accomplished Scholar


The Reverend Daniel Heischman has always been interested in the idea of being a college chaplain. “I had a very positive experience when I was a student at a small liberal arts college, and I’m excited about being part of the Trinity community.”

An accomplished teacher of religion and ethics, Reverend Heischman was head of the upper school at St. Albans in Washington, D.C. before coming to Trinity.  He has also taught at the Trinity School in New York City and the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Maryland.  In both 2000 and 2003 he was the recipient of the Presidential Scholars Teacher Recognition Award.

“In addition to the physical grandeur and appeal of the chapel, which attracted me tremendously, I have an appreciation for all the various dimensions that are present in the life of an educational community.” 

After graduating from the College of Wooster, Reverend Heischman earned master’s degrees from both Cambridge and Yale, and holds a doctorate in ministry from the Princeton Theological Seminary.  An avid runner, he enjoys music, travel, and knows his way around a kitchen. 

“I think that it’s important for a chaplain to be involved in the fullness of campus life, and that is something that I’m very much looking forward to here at Trinity.”
