Yale Humanist Community

—————————-

The Yale Humanist Community (YHC) is dedicated to supporting a diverse community of Humanists, atheists, agnostics, and the nonreligious at Yale and beyond. We equally welcome those that self-describe as nonbelievers, skeptics, and searchers—as well as anyone who identifies as religious or as a theist that is interested in our programs. YHC serves undergraduate and graduate student communities; in addition, Yale faculty, staff, alumni, and the general public are welcome and encouraged to participate.

 

Within this eclectic group, the YHC strives to provide members with access to a caring community, support in an ethical framework, and opportunities for interfaith dialogue and reflective service. Additionally, we hope to engage in activities to educate community members about the worldview of Humanism as defined in the Humanist Manifesto:

“Humanism is a progressive philosophy, rooted in scientific naturalism, that affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully”.
