Yale Humanist Community Working on Creating Chaplaincy

Yale University may soon get a Humanist Chaplain if the school’s Humanist Community can line all the ducks up in a row:

The Yale Humanist Community, launched last fall, is “in the process of working with the Yale Chaplaincy Office to officially be recognized as a Yale Chaplaincy,” says the humanist group’s new website. A group of alumni, students, and others are organizing events and raising money to hire a staff person — who might or might not be called a chaplain.

Either way, if they made it happen, they would be the sixth school with such a position, joining Stanford (John Figdor), Columbia (Dr. Anne Klaeysen), Harvard (Greg Epstein), Rutgers (Barry Klassel), and American University (Binyamin Biber).
