Secularism as a Discipline
Secularism, the unofficial reigning world view on campus, is now a course of study at Pitzer College, in southern California. The New York Times recently announced that Pitzer is adding a major in Secularism. Pitzer is a part of the Claremont colleges, and InterVarsity does have a chapter at Claremont.
It seems likely that this innovation may open the door to a more vigorous debate about spirituality on campus, which seems like a good thing. That’s the view taken by (InterVarsity alumnus) James Emery White on the Church and Culture blog. Mike Hickerson, at InterVarsity’s Emerging Scholars blog, has already weighed in with observations and questions.
InterVarsity staff and students value dialogue on world views and religious beliefs. At many campuses, InterVarsity helps contribute to the campus dialogue by sponsoring a Veritas Forum, featuring top Christian thinkers and other leading scholars. All of this in pursuit of our vision to transform students and faculty, renew the campus, and develop world changers.
