About Us

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States. The ACLU's mission is to fight civil liberties violations wherever and whenever they occur. The ACLU supports the international struggle for human rights and works to ensure that the US government abides by the civil liberties principles embedded in the various conventions, covenants and declarations adopted by the international community.


The purpose of the Chapter is to foster awareness and education of the individual rights and liberties, and the threats to them, of the persons on and around the University campus. The Chapter will further the efforts of the national and state offices of the ACLU


We hold regular meetings every Wednesday at 8:00pm in the Bartlett Trophy Lounge. All are welcome!
