The mission of the William F. Buckley Jr, Program is to promote intellectual diversity at Yale University. We aim to expand political discourse on campus and expose students to often-unvoiced views. We believe that ideas have consequences and that genuine intellectual diversity is essential for advancing critical inquiry and avoiding ideological complacency.
Our hope is that by providing a home for a diverse collection of serious conservative thought we can provide a forum for Yale students to consider and examine a range of political philosophies to which they are rarely exposed.
As such, the purpose of this program is to foster open political discussion and intellectual engagement on campus.
