The Campus Coordinator Program began in 2010 with a class of 24 students from across the United States. In 2011 the program more than doubled to 58 students and included three leaders from Canada and one from Venezuela. The Campus Coordinators continued to play a vital role in SFL’s leadership by directing 5 of the 13 SFL Regional Conferences, a responsibility previously reserved for members of the Executive Board. In 2012, Students For Liberty accepted 90 Campus Coordinators from 27 states and Canada. The Campus Coordinators each started to build Forums for Freedom in their regions: small, informal meetings of local student leaders from various pro-liberty student groups who come together to discuss ways to improve and coordinate their efforts. They also played a crucial role in the overall success of all 15 fall regional conferences, as well as the groundbreaking International Students For Liberty Conference with over 1,400 attendees. Today, over 120 Campus Coordinators are working across North America to advance the ideas of liberty. Our CCs have made progress this year toward putting on 25 Regional conferences, changing their campuses unconstitutional speech codes, and sharing the ideas of liberty with students in their areas.
The Campus Coordinator Program is highly competitive, and designed for the top student leaders in North America. All members of SFL’s Campus Coordinator Program must be current university students (undergraduate or graduate) in either the United States or Canada.
