Portal Information


The reformation of the College Democrats of Oakland University (C.D.O.U.) is being undertaken in an effort to give voice, power, and direction to likeminded students. The C.D.O.U. will accomplish this task through the combined efforts of the Democratic campus community. Organizing campus visits by political, scientific, educational, and labor leaders from across the nation will serve to further enlighten the population of Oakland University. We will be a unified assembly designed to further the general cause of the United States of America and the Democratic Party.

Perhaps the most consequential aspect of American freedom is the right to assemble and speak. It is therefore the perpetual hope of the founding governance of the College Democrats that the General Assembly will elevate the civil discourse allowing for a place of honest and ideologically diverse deliberation. Current events and legislation shall be presented and discussed while helping to protect the democratic process; out of this, specific policy goals shall be created.

Universities have long been known as the nerve center of creativity and problem solving. It is time that the students recognize their political prowess and direct their intelligence toward noble pursuits.
