We follow in the intellectual tradition of great Australian leaders, such as Robert Menzies and John Howard, and international leaders such as Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.
As a club, we believe in standing against the ever increasing leviathan of the state and in defending civil society and those fundamental rights, considered classically liberal but conservative in the Anglosphere: free enterprise, freedom of assembly, belief, speech and the defence of property rights.
We value the inheritance of Western Civilization; the rule of law, the constitution, the family and the Judeo-Christian values that have underpinned it.
We are not aligned with any political party. As such, we are independent in developing and advocating Conservative ideas. We provide our members the opportunity to meet fellow students of a centre-right persuasion. Members cultivate political skills and develop an intellectual and philosophical grounding in the context of centre-right Australian politics.
Why join us?
We believe that university is all about the sharing of ideas and advancement of knowledge. There is no better place to explore this marketplace of ideas than at Sydney University’s Conservative Club.
