We're committed to bringing secularism into the mainstream of the human rights movement. Students and student societies play a vital role in campaigning for secularism, and we're always keen to expand our support for student groups.
In recent years we've seen that universities are becoming a key area where secularism is being both explored and challenged. Active engaged students can help promote secularism and help us to campaign for a society in which people of all religions or none can live together fairly and peacefully.
Secularists, atheists and advocates of free speech are facing unique challenges on UK university campuses today. While many groups do great work supporting student activism, the National Secular Society has a proven track record helping societies facing difficulties on campus, particularly concerning censorship from universities and student unions.
Standing up for secular values like freedom of expression is at the heart of the NSS' work. This is particularly important in universities. We are keen to raise awareness of threats to secularism and free speech which occur on campuses and to support the development of student groups; so please contact us if you need our support.
Please get in touch if you would like any resources for your student society. We have leaflets, publications and badges.
