The Columbia Political Union (CPU) is Columbia University's largest and most active political organization. In its unique role as Columbia's only non-partisan political organization, CPU works with every other undergraduate political group on campus. CPU's mission is to increase political involvement, create fora for open discussion and debate, and provide access to information. CPU puts on special events and has hosted speakers such as Howard Dean, John Ashcroft, Al Gore, John McCain, Robert Rubin, Hillary Clinton, Phyllis Schlafley, and Arianna Huffington. CPU also publishes a quarterly magazine of political commentary called The Columbia Political Review, puts together issue-based expert panels, hosts the campus's only multi-partisan political blog, publishes non-partisan informational election guides certified by both the College Republicans and College Democrats, runs voter registration drives, and moderates debates between the College Democrats and College Republicans. Please see the Events page for a more extensive list of the guest speakers and events CPU has hosted in recent months.
There are many opportunities to get involved. We welcome all volunteers, regardless of experience. Please email General Manager Mingming Feng and the Executive Board at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to take on an active role in CPU.
