Harvard Community of Humanists, Atheists, Agnostics (Undergraduates)
Harvard’s Humanist Hub opened in 2013 as the first campus “Center for Humanist Life,” dedicated to helping atheist, agnostic and nonreligious students connect with one another, act to make the world better, and evolve as human beings. Steps from Harvard Yard, the Hub has been packed with students and others ever since! Check out our open house, where you can meet members of HCHAA, the Harvard College Community of Humanists, Atheists and Agnostics; and meet our Humanist chaplain Greg Epstein, author of the New York Times bestseller Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe. You’ll also hear about all of our great programs, including past speakers such as Joss Whedon, Seth MacFarlane, and Sue Gardner; weekly student social gatherings and parties with great food and discussions, plus all the best atheism-related episodes of shows like South Park and Orange is the New Black; interfaith socials and debates, HCHAA camping retreats, service projects, secular meditation/mindfulness, and more!
Open to current Harvard undergraduate students only.

Anti-Racism Collaborative (ARC) of Greater Boston is a multi-racial collective of anti-oppression educators and activists committed to supporting the movement for racial justice and equity.
ARC provides skillfully structured safe(r) spaces for engaging in participatory learning that explores the individual and collective processes of dismantling racism.
Honoring the diverse lived experiences that relate to systemic racism and oppression present in any mixed group, ARC employs an adaptive affinity group model for working skillfully amidst difference. By working together to facilitate group learning in a racially mixed class, ARC facilitators deeply respect the role of identity-based affinity groups when this may prove more productive. Our facilitators aim to maximize both personal safety and collective learning by balancing mixed and affinity group work in alternation and combination.

E.O. Wilson Big Question Lab & Kids Programs
Weekly SUNDAYS 1:30pm (open to all!)
Begun in 2012 as the Humanist Community at Harvard’s secular Sunday school, the BQL wanted to create a place where children in mixed or non-religious families could come together and develop their compassion, creativity, and critical thinking. Now we want to share those lessons with like-minded groups and host a conversation about where we can all go from here.
A Sunday school at the Humanist Hub looks like kids having fun; expressing themselves, having intriguing discussions, sharing stories, and playing together. We want to encourage kids in any way we can to keep asking big questions about what it means to live well in our changing world.
