Culture/Identity Based Political & Activism Service & Volunteerism Special Interest


The College Democrats are a direct route for our fellow students to engage with politics. We instill values of environmental, racial, and economic justice, encourage young people to participate in the American political process, and provide opportunities to work on Democratic campaigns. We also serve as a place to discuss current events, vent about politics, and meet some like-minded people! Whether it’s meeting with local politicians, tabling outside of the library, volunteering in the community, or door-knocking in the dead of winter (donuts included) we always have a good time! The College Democrats is an official chapter of the College and Young Democrats of Iowa, which itself is co-chartered through College Democrats of America and Young Democrats of America.
