About

Who We Are

We are the UCF chapter of the national Secular Student Alliance, or SSA.

SSAatUCF attending the American Humanist Association Conference in 2015

Our aim is to offer an environment for those with secular, humanist, and nontheistic ideals, to exchange ideas in an environment that is free from (and argues against) dogmatism, bigotry, and superstition. We offer everyone with secular values a place to contribute to their community out of kindness and compassion for humanity. Our goal is to promote scientific research, critical analysis (of ALL subjects), and secular values.

We also have a chapter of Recovering From Religion, a support group dedicated to helping those who are leaving religion, doubting their faith, or have already left their religion.

Secular Student Alliance is a great place to meet other students on campus, get involved, and make friends.

What We Stand For

The underlying purpose of Secular Student Alliance is to build a society in which the ideals of critical thinking and scientific inquiry, secularism, democracy, and human-based ethics flourish. While many organizations exist to spread these values to adult populations, SSA focuses on fostering them among high school and college students.

Mission

Our mission is to organize, unite, educate, and serve students and student communities that promote the ideals of scientific rationality, secularism, democracy, and human-based ethics. We aim to encourage critical thinking and erode the influence of dogmatism, bigotry, and superstition in our society.
