The Secular Student Alliance is working with students and faculty at The University of New Orleans to start a campus group for atheists, agnostics, nontheists, humanists, skeptics, freethinkers, and other students who do not believe in a god or gods. Secular Student Alliance affiliates promote the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism and human-based ethics. We accomplish this through five areas of focus: education, service, activism, community and cooperation. Our goals are to: - Educate ourselves and our communities about religion and nontheism - Contribute to society through community service - Participate in our government through activism - Build a community for nontheists at The University of New Orleans - Cooperate with other groups of both similar and dissimilar viewpoints to foster understanding and communication.
