Investigation Announcement


On June 15, 2016, we announced that we were launching a Board-led investigation into our handling of a complaint against Dr. Carrier. Since that announcement, an outside consultant was brought on board to lead the investigation. 

The consultant was given complete autonomy in their investigation and has been actively interviewing people. Our Board has been receiving frequent updates and is in regular contact with the consultant. Based on the current findings to date, the consultant has recommended the investigation be expanded beyond its original scope and the Board has agreed. 

Again, The Secular Student Alliance does not tolerate harassment of its members. Any harassment conducted by speakers who are affiliated with SSA can be reported using this form: https://secularstudents.org/speakers/report

The expectations of our speakers can be found here: https://secularstudents.org/speakers/policies 

The outcome of this investigation will result in new policies and processes to better protect our students. At the conclusion of our investigation we will release what we can about our findings. 

In the meantime, we want to make clear that speakers who are removed for cause from our Speakers Bureau will not be invited to SSA Con 2016, or to any future SSA Con. We are also currently working on a policy for informing students of Speakers Bureau member removals. 

We have added an email address to report any harassment/code of conduct issues that either occurred in the past or are currently existing: investigation@secularstudents.org. These issues will go directly to our consultant and will be handled in the strictest confidence.

No __, no shoes, no service :: This Week


SSA Con is an event to remember, and one of the best ways to remember it is with a t-shirt! Printouts will be filled and pens will be lost, but a shirt is something you’ll be able to carry with you for years! Why, just look at this handsome fellow in his 2015 shirt at the Reason Rally!

But this is the last week to order SSA Con 2016 t-shirts! We don’t order many extra, so pre-ordering one is the only way to guarantee you leave the Con with this most special souvenir. Plus, pre-ordered t-shirts are $5 less than the ones you’ll get at the table, and you’ll know for sure we have your size!

Register your group for SSA Con today by selecting the Group Package Plus to pre-order your group’s t-shirts today!


4 weeks until SSA Con! Some last minute things for you :: This Week

During SSA Con, we do everything we can to make the entire weekend as fun, safe, and accommodating an experience as we can. That’s why we have a set of SSA Con policies for the protection of our attendees and continued good standing with our host site. Please review our Code of Conduct and help ensure that no one has a bad time.
As soon as people arrive at SSA Con and check in at The Ohio State Student Union, we always get this question: “so where are the dorms?” Park-Stradley Hall. Look it up, and save it on your phone. However, you check in at the desk at Smith-Steeb Hall starting at 3pm on Friday. If you are arriving Thursday, and have paid for the extra night, then you may check in on Thursday after 3 PM. There are provided sheets, towels, and a pillow, but you can bring extra if you want.
How do I get my travel aid check? Will t-shirts be on sale? How does parking work? Quick answers: At the SSA Table on Sunday! Yes, but you should pre-order one during registration! There is a garage by the Union or meters on the street! For all your other questions, check out our SSA Con Frequently Asked Questions!

Everyone at the Reason Rally!!

"There were so many students who came up to me raving about the Secular Student Alliance. That really showed me how important having these groups are, and their power to bring strangers together and form lasting bonds! I was continually impressed by their stories, and was glad the Rally gave them an opportunity to come together!"

Lyz Liddell, Reason Rally Executive Director

We saw so many students at the Reason Rally! Some even came from as far away as California! Not only were we amazed at how many showed up, by how many were there as an SSA group! Each student there embodied the spirit of the Reason Rally, and your stories from throughout the year impressed every person that stopped by our table for a free goodie bag. If you attended the Reason Rally, let us know about your experience!
