The humanist group is a monthly discussion group that typically meets on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the AUUF Busch Center. Meetings are announced via an email to the AUUF list serve and a separate email list of interested individuals.

The general format is to have potluck from 5-6, and then often a speaker, or discussion topic from 6-7. The group is comprised of both AUUF members and nonmembers. Those who attend share a passion for discussing topics of mutual interest. Among the wide variety of previous talks from the past year have been:

a) Humanist Volunteer Work focusing on Work in Refugee Camps of Women Accused of Witchcraft in Ghana.

b) Survival of the Fittest in Nature and in Business Through Competition or Cooperation?

c) Half the Population: the Status of Women in the South, 2015

d) What Humanists Should Know Before Talking about Religion.

e) Pakistan: The Curse of Geostrategic Importance

f) What Should Humanists’ Greatest Gift to Humanity and/or the World Be?

g) Preparing for Dependent Living or End-of-Life Decisions When We’d Rather Not Think About It: Why You Should Read Being Mortal
