Sagesse University

A student-based secular club has been launched at Lebanon’s Université La Sagesse (ULS).

Announced on Monday, the Sagesse Secular Club aims at promoting the values of secularism, participatory democracy, and social justice.

Its goals, according to the club’s announcement statement, are:

  • Forcing economic equality in terms of education by implementing fair tuition fees
  • Defending the rights and liberties of students against racism and discrimination
  • Getting students involved in ULS’s decision-making process via democratic elections

The goals come together under the umbrella of inducing change and reform within the university.

Long-term, the club seeks to contribute, alongside students in other universities, to reforming Lebanon.

The Sagesse Secular Club is currently open for registration. Interested students can sign up to join here.

Lebanese universities have seen a rise in independent and secular clubs over the past year.

In February, a secular club was established for the first time at the Lebanese University.

More recently, in May, students at the American University of Science and Technology formed a secular club that promotes secularism, pluralism, and democracy.
