Davidson College Democrats
The Davidson College Democrats seek to champion the Davidson values of service to others, justice for all, and loving community through progressive political activity. The purpose of the organization remains to empower Davidson students to be citizen-leaders working for a truly democratic society, to build a healthy, free, and just political climate at Davidson College, and to advance our stated values and democratic ideals through advocacy for progressive policies and social justice.
Davidson College Libertarians
Our purpose is to promote liberty on Davidson's campus and in our wider community by bringing speakers and opening communication between students on subjects including freedom of speech, civil liberties and government involvement in our lives. We aim to engage the student body in conversations about public and school policies which might infringe upon personal liberties.
Davidson College Republicans
The Davidson College Republicans seek to foster an inclusive and open political discourse on campus. We work both independently and with other campus organizations to host events, educate students, turn out voters, and engage with the student body on primarily North Carolina politics. We align with the values and policies of the National Republican Party, but do not discriminate in our membership with respect to politics or any other quality described in Davidson College's anti-discrimination clause.
