Humanist and Secular Services at University of Central Florida


About the Chaplaincy

Humanist and Secular Services at UCF provides Humanist perspective inner-life support to students, faculty, and staff; advocates for inclusion and rights of non-religious and underrepresented faith demographics on our campus; maintains partnerships on the campus and in the community; and promotes awareness about Humanism.

Direct services to the campus include individual guidance and consultations; discussion groups; workshops; assistance with accessing secular-friendly campus and community resources; and volunteer opportunities.

Our Secular and Religious Minority Awareness workshop is part of the university’s Diversity and Inclusion educational programming for faculty, staff, and students. It promotes academic, social, and professional campus environments that include and respect individuals of all faith and non-faith perspectives. We also host outreach and educational events to inform the campus and greater community about the worldview of Humanism and the experience of living without God.

We empower a network of Worldview Safe Zone allies to provide visible, campus-wide support for anyone facing marginalization, bullying, discrimination, proselytization, and other challenges because of their faith or non-faith identity.
