Calvin University Democrats

Basic information

The Calvin University Democrats are a group of Christian liberal students who believe that it is our responsibility to serve God faithfully through encouraging bipartisan political discussion among students and faculty, promoting liberal ideologies and candidates, fostering an inclusive environment at Calvin, and directing the participation of Democrat students.

Recognizing the potentially divisive nature of today’s political discourse, we strive to advocate our goals in a respectful, considerate, and rational manner to promote discussion and tolerance rather than division and conflict.
