Preamble to the Constitution of the United States (1789)
MISSION: THE NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY POLITICAL UNION IS A COMMUNITY OF STUDENTS UNITED BY THEIR COMMON INTEREST IN DISCUSSION OF POLITICAL AND GLOBAL AFFAIRS.
The Northwestern University Political Union is a community of students with varying political viewpoints, united by their common interest in discussion of political and global affairs. Weekly meetings are student-run and center around various student-chosen debate topics. The Political Union also sponsors guest speakers and faculty panels, providing an intimate forum for engagement with leading public intellectuals and political figures.
Most importantly, the Union believes in the power of active student contributions to the Political Union as the Union seeks to put student voices in dialogue with one another and with public leaders. Founded in the Spring of 2008, the organization has grown quickly as students have found both intellectual fulfillment and camaraderie with friends through the society. Northwestern University Political Union look forward to your involvement as the Union seeks to tackle the most important questions in public affairs as a Northwestern community.
