Be a Secular Ambassador on campus

Secular Ambassadors represent secularism and the Secular Student Alliance on campus where there isn't an SSA chapter yet.

How do I become a Secular Ambassador?
Easy. Just tell us you want to be one.

What will I be required to do?
There aren't requirements, per se, but we will give you lots of opportunities to speak up and act on behalf of secular values such as:
  • Advocate for the secular viewpoint with your student government
  • Write op-eds and letters to the editor in your school paper
  • Reach out to your office of diversity and inclusion and ask them about what they’re doing to engage non-religious students as a group,
  • Engage with the office of religious life and offer to represent a secular humanist perspective,
  • Speak up when the non-religious are left out by writing and speaking to school administration or student government, reminding them that 40% of college aged Americans are non-religious.
  • Host a speaker on your campus in partnerships with other student organizations.
Become a Secular Ambassador today!
