Students For Liberty is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a unified, student-driven forum of support for students and student organizations dedicated to liberty.
The philosophy of liberty is in jeopardy today. The older generations have let us down, and there seem to be few short-term solutions. Our hope for a free society lies in the future. The best investment one can make to promote liberty today is in the youth, particularly in students.
The problem is significant, but the solution is clear: There is a need for an organization to counter the climate of authoritarianism on campus by directly supporting students dedicated to liberty.

Students For Liberty provides an abundance of activities, programs and resources to support students interested in liberty. SFL’s efforts can be broken down into 3 general categories:
SFL is a leader in the field of student group resources by providing consulting services targeted directly towards student groups to help groups form and run more efficiently. This includes publications on how to effectively run student groups such as our How to Start a Student Organization for Liberty guide, as well as one-on-one support where SFL leaders tackle specific problems that student organizations send to us.
SFL networks students interested in liberty with three groups: students, leaders, and organizations. SFL connects students dedicated to liberty with other students to strengthen their support for one another and show students that they are not alone. SFL provides opportunities for students to meet leaders in the cause of liberty today at our many conferences and through our alumni outreach. Lastly, SFL seeks to expose students interested in liberty to the many organizations that exist to promote liberty to students. Our hope is that by strengthening these networks, students will become more enthusiastic about liberty and be better equipped to promote liberty on campus.
SFL provides independent resources to promote liberty and empower students to be leaders of liberty. These include an academic journal, free books for reading groups, e-leadership webinars, protest grants, and many more resources that are coming out soon.
