Campus BluePrint is a non-partisan student publication at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Although founded as a committee of UNC Young Democrats, it has since broken ties and is now an independent organization that offers a forum for open dialogue on progressive ideals at UNC-Chapel Hill and in the greater community.
The goal of the Campus BluePrint student organization is to produce a publication that will cover political, cultural, and social news as well as publish pertinent opinion columns and blog posts that will promote discussion about progressive ideals.

History

Campus BluePrint was founded by a small group of Young Democrats members in the spring of 2009 to encourage political dialogue on campus in the wake of the 2008 presidential election. We have since grown to become one of the largest magazines at UNC. We cover university, local, state, national and world politics, as well as other topics that are of interest to liberals and conservatives alike, such as profiles of local services organizations, book and movie reviews, travel retrospectives, and musings on social justice.

Commenting Policy

Campus BluePrint moderates comments on all blog posts, so it may take some time for your comment to appear. Please be patient. Campus BluePrint hopes to provoke thoughtful and meaningful discussion and as such does not censor comments based on political or ideological content. However we reserve the right to delete those comments that:

1) Are solicitations and/or advertising for personal blogs and websites (spam);

2) Contain personal attacks or abusive language; contain profanity; contain racist, sexist or homophobic language or other slurs. We reserve the right to revoke commenting privileges of those individuals who repeatedly or excessively violate our commenting policy.

Partnerships

Campus BluePrint collaborates with several other progressive student organizations to provide a forum for involved students to report on the issues that matter most to them. We currently work with Energy and Environment Policy Center of the Roosevelt Institute, FLO (Fair, Local, Organic) Food, the Carolina International Relations Association and Advocates for Human Rights of the Campus Y.

Published with support from Generation Progress, a division of the Center for American Progress. Paid for also in part by UNC Student Congress.
