The Connecticut College Democrats is a political organization dedicated to raising political awareness of both local and national issues. The issues range from health care to local elections to Supreme Court nominations and just about everything in between. We work closely with the New London Democrats in an effort to help involve ourselves more with the community so that we may play a more active role in improving both our campus and New London.
The Connecticut College Republicans & Conservatives is club dedicated to encouraging dynamic, diverse and encompassing political discourse on the Connecticut College campus; stimulating interest in governmental and international affairs; and developing an awareness of the political spectrum that exists among the student body. The Club also seeks to offer a different perspective to political, social, economic and cultural issues to create and maintain an intellectually stimulating academic climate on campus.
This club also seeks to provide a forum for impartial discussion and host on-campus events and activities that educate the participating student body on current political, economic and social issues; and encourage voter registration and participation among the student body and the New London community.
The Roosevelt Institute, working to redefine the rules that guide our social and economic realities, is home to the nation’s largest network of emerging doers and thinkers committed to re-imagining and re-writing the rules in their communities to create lasting change. Members, organizing on 120 college campuses and in 38 states nationwide, partner with policymakers and communicators to provide them with clear, principled ideas and visionary, actionable plans.
Members are actively influencing policy on the local, state and national level—from introducing legislation on protections for LGBTQ youth to consulting with local governments on natural disaster flood prevention. Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, Roosevelters re-imagine America as it should be—a place where work is rewarded, everyone participates, and everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity.
The purpose of the Student Government Association is to consider issues and to formulate policies in areas primarily or exclusively involving the student body. Such areas shall include, but not be limited to, matters of social, academic and co-curricular policies. The association also seeks to provide extended channels of communication, increased areas of cooperation and a greater acceptance of shared responsibility between faculty, administration and the student body in matters of general and academic interests.
SGA meets Thursdays at 7:15 p.m. in the Ernst Common Room, Blaustein Humanities Center.
