Secularism on Campus
a Center for Inquiry Institute
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Clapp Hall Auditorium
University of Pittsburgh
4249 Fifth Avenue
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 Campus, Center for Inquiry—Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh Secular Alliance, and the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.
