The Humanist Chaplaincy at Rutgers University has recently changed its name and is now the HUMANIST COMMUNITY AT RUTGERS UNIVERSITY!
There has always been a lot of debate over the use of ‘Chaplaincy’ for a non-religious organization. In changing to the the Humanist Community at Rutgers, we hope to both facilitate communication about the work we do on campus and continue in the direction of many of our sister organizations, such as the Harvard Community and the Stanford Connection. We also hope that the use of ‘community’ instead of ‘chaplaincy’ will give a clearer sense of our secular nature.
HCRU will otherwise function just as it has. In fact, we don’t even have to change the acronym! If you have any questions, just let us know.
