Purpose/Mission

The DePaul College Democrats are committed to increased political conversation and political involvement on DePaul's campus. We strive to promote openness and fairness among our members and in our meetings, and we are dedicated to creating a campus that's more politically active and aware of the world around us.

Goals

Please list at least three goals your organization wishes to achieve during the 2015-2016 school year.

1. We would like to see increased membership among older students. This year, over half of the regular meeting attendees (excluding executive board) consisted of freshmen, and we'd like to see greater participation from students from all of the different schools on campus.
2. We would like to create a more politically aware/active student body within DePaul, and involve ourselves in a leadership role within the various political debates and discussions that occur here at DePaul University
3. We would like to expand our successes that we had with the Mix & Greet, Debate, and Guest Speaker by continuing these things next year and expanding upon our influence here at DePaul University.
4. We would like to have at least half of our members working in a political internship, job, or volunteer opportunity. We believe it's crucial that we have our members involved in local, state, and federal politics.
5. We will help elect a new wave of Democratic leaders in the 2014 midterm elections. We believe it's crucial to keep Illinois as a Democratic stronghold and a center for Progressive policies and politics.
