(3) Offering a secular voice in academic discussions around the University.
(4) Initiating discussions on religion, science, and philosophy.
(5) Encouraging the open and free exchange of ideas.
(6) Discouraging unsupported harmful personal beliefs.
(7) Organizing events centered on the interests of the secular community.
(8) Work with the secular community at large to promote these ideals.
