A prominent leader in the national movement to build positive, inclusive and inspiring humanist communities, Greg M. Epstein has served the country’s rapidly growing population of nonreligious people for nearly two decades. Described as a “godfather to the [humanist] movement” by The New York Times Magazine in recognition of his efforts, Epstein was also named “one of the top faith and moral leaders in the United States” by Faithful Internet, a project coordinated by the United Church of Christ with assistance from the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society.
Greg currently serves as the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University, a position he has held since 2005. He also serves the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Office of Religious Life as Humanist Chaplain at MIT and “Convener,” and is the Executive Director of the Humanist Hub at Harvard and MIT, a secular community-building that was the first of its kind. Greg has helped establish similar organizations at Yale, Stanford, USC and other academic institutions.
