Get Involved

There are tons of ways to get involved with the Humanist Community at Rutgers University.

The Rutgers Community regularly holds events. We also participate in other Rutgers activities when our presence is appropriate and benefits the university Humanist community.


If you are a student, you can also get involved with Rutgers Student Clubs associated with the HCRU.


Five Main ways to Get Involved

We would love for you to participate in our events.  Not only is that one of the reasons why we’re around, but it would help support the Community.  When the goal is community, your presence ensures success!

The Humanist Community at Rutgers is run solely on generous donations from people like you.  We are currently planning an Endowment Fund to secure our continued presence.

If you’d like to donate your time, energy and expertise there are lots of ways you can lend a helping hand.  Please take a look at our Volunteer page to see how, or send us an email.  We would love to help you find your niche.

The Community is always looking for speakers to give presentations and lectures.  Our monthly meetings, open to the public, usually consist of a speaker or panel presenting on a very wide range of topics related to Humanist issues.  Let us know if you would like to speak at one of our events.

The Humanist Community helps manage a Rutgers Humanist community blog Applied Sentience.  AS is edited and written by Rutgers alum, faculty, and current students.  However, we also take articles from those not affiliated with Rutgers or who don’t identify as Humanists or atheists.  The only real requirement is that it adds to the conversation of trying to figure out the the world around us and our responsibility in it.  We take opinion pieces, interviews, poems, photojournalistic essays, and well, pretty much everything else.
