This timely event about Secularism on Campus celebrates the growing numbers of secular students on campuses today, and focuses on how their secular campus activities are raising appreciation for nonbelieving and freethought perspectives. Speakers include several leaders of secular campus groups who will describe their impact on their campuses, and their struggles for recognition and respect.

The rights of secular students to organize and get recognized will be also discussed, in the aftermath of Duquesne University’s rejection of a secular student group. The leader of that group, Colin Stragar-Rice, is among our speakers. This Center for Inquiry Institute educational event is co-sponsored by the Center for Inquiry—On CampusCenter for Inquiry—PittsburghUniversity of Pittsburgh Secular Alliance, and the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.
