Sadly, our interns have left us, which reminds us another school year is about to begin. You know what that means? Yep, pretty soon, all over this great country, college professors will be telling a new crop of students that the Constitution was a conspiracy of rich white men, that free markets caused the Great Depression, that truth is just a social construct, and that being a conservative is a hate crime. Students who want to learn, meet other conservatives, or get active fighting liberal bias on campus should keep these resources handy:
• Students for Liberty will have a 15 regional conferences coming up this fall. The group also has a page of resources for getting active on campus, including tabling kits!
• The Intercollegiate Studies Institute has a variety of resources for students interested in understanding America’s traditions of liberty, including online lectures, an honors program, support for student newspapers, and help getting conservative speakers on your campus.
• The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leader’s Program offers a variety of resources to students interested in public policy, including regular online seminars with the best conservative public policy thinkers.
• The Network of enlightened Women, with dozens of chapters of conservative women across the country, does great things on campus such as promoting respect for women.
• The Benjamin Rush Society teaches medical students about free market health care reform.
• The Federalist Society is the place to go for law students seeking to understand the connection between liberty and law.
• Use CampusReform.org to find other conservative students at your school, and to report teachers and administrators who abuse their authority in order to promote leftist causes.
• The Young America’s Foundation has regular conferences and helps conservative students on campus with a variety of resources, including The Conservative Guide to Campus Activism.
• Check in with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education for regular updates on the state of academic freedom on Ameica’s campuses.
• Accuracy in Academia keeps track of crazy things professors say. Maybe you’ll find an article about your professor there.
• The Institute for Humane Studies is the place for students who want to learn more about libertarian ideas.
• And if you happen to care what the Constitution actually says, you can’t go wrong picking up a copy of Hillsdale College’s new The U.S. Constitution: A Reader.
Next week we’ll offer some resources for teachers for the coming school year.
