About Us

The Ciceronian Society was founded in 2021 at Duke University to provide a forum for discussion of conservative, centrist, and libertarian thought, including dialogue around political philosophy, economics, policy, and technology.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of The Ciceronian Society shall be to provide a forum for discussion of political philosophy, economics, and policy, specifically pertaining to classical liberalism, centrism, libertarianism, objectivism, and conservatism. TCS will provide an open room for discussion and debate without judgement nor ideological bias. Topics of interest within such fields, ranging from classical antiquity to the present, shall be discussed, with particular focus on contemporary affairs and policy implications.

The Ciceronian Society will seek to accomplish this mission by holding monthly general body meetings, debates, political engagement events, guest speakers, and opportunities to connect with the broader Duke community.
