Humanist Chaplain Anthony Cruz Pantojas

Welcome to the Humanist Community at Tufts

Bienvenides a todes! Welcome to all!

I am Anthony Cruz Pantojas and I am excited to welcome you to the Tufts Humanist Chaplaincy! I support a community  of mutual support and exploration, inclusion and care, and we have been gearing up for another exciting year ahead. Together with the student-led Humanist Community at Tufts (HCAT) we will invite the campus community to take up bold responses for the ethical challenges we face as a society. We will hold them as a community, caring for each other along the way. As such, we will take on the following questions together:

What does meaningful social activism look like?

How might we forge strong coalitions?

How might it feel to create the world(s) we long for?

As we consider and respond to these questions together, I hope that wonder, imagination and the expansive perspectives of Humanist and freethought traditions guide us into becoming the community we need and want to be. I welcome you to engage and contribute to this ongoing conversation and evolving community, and hope that you will contact me if you would like to schedule an introductory meeting over coffee or tea.

En conjunto,

Anthony Cruz Pantojas, MATS, MALS


Humanist Chaplain


At the Tufts Humanist Chaplaincy, we support community members who don't identify with traditional religion, but still want the kind of support, resources, and programming the University Chaplaincy offers. The Humanist Chaplain provides individual counseling to members of the Tufts community, no matter their background, and facilitates small groups and larger programs on campus.

The Humanist Community at Tufts (HCAT) is the TCU-affiliated student group connected with the Humanist Chaplaincy. Some members of HCAT would consider themselves non-religious, others would not--the purpose of the community is to be accessible and safe for everyone, especially for those who haven't always felt that way in traditionally religious spaces. HCAT organizes community and service events in collaboration with the Humanist Chaplain throughout the year.
