Our mission is to educate, develop, and empower the next generation of leaders of liberty.


Educating young people about the philosophy of liberty.

Students For Liberty educates young people about the philosophy of liberty. We do this in two ways: by helping young people learn about the principles of a free society, and by identifying those young people who are already supportive of liberty and providing them with resources to spread the ideas. This step is not about providing advanced education regarding the nuances of libertarian theory. Rather, we aim to provide a basic education to as many people as possible on the meaning of liberty and key values of classical liberalism


Developing the leadership skills of those who support liberty.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

SFL develops the leadership skills of those who support liberty. To effect change, it’s not enough for someone to intellectually agree with the principles of liberty: they must be capable of taking action to bring it about. This is why SFL is providing training and support to develop the leadership skills of our volunteers. The goal is to help them be more effective organizers, managers, writers, speakers, and overall better leaders today and tomorrow. This involves teaching fundamental skills that all successful leaders should know, as well as facilitating personal growth and specialization in areas where our students can provide the most value for liberty.


Empowering students and alumni to make the world a freer place.

Students For Liberty empowers students and alumni to make the world a freer place. For anyone supportive of the principles of liberty, we want to provide the resources, network, training, infrastructure, and any other kind of support we can, to help them become more active and more successful in advancing the cause of liberty. This defines SFL and drives our programs so that we will ultimately bring about change which favors freedom.

What Does Liberty Mean to SFL?

Students For Liberty is an organization that supports liberty for all people. SFL does not dictate the foundations upon which individuals justify their belief in Liberty.

Rather, Students For Liberty embraces the diversity of justifications for liberty and encourages debate and discourse on the differing philosophies that underlie liberty. What Students For Liberty endorses are the principles that comprise liberty:

Economic Freedom

Individual Freedom

Academic Freedom


Students For Liberty was founded in 2008 by a group of students who wanted to make a difference by supporting their fellow pro-liberty students on campus.

Pro-liberty student groups had long been isolated from one another and the larger liberty movement. The initial Students For Liberty Conference at Columbia University was originally planned for around 30 students, but demand far exceeded those estimates and 100 students ended up attending the conference in spite of a blizzard that shut down most of the region.

From those humble beginnings, the organization has grown each year to keep up with the rapidly growing demand and provide support to the student movement for liberty.
