Carolina Review stands as a journal to champion Enlightenment thinking — the ideals which our University and our Republic have long stood to represent.

We strive to be the most visible and consistent voice of conservative and libertarian thought in publication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Our purpose is to promote a political philosophy of free thought and individual liberty as an intelligent way of viewing the world.

We believe one’s time at university should be comprised of rational and informed discussion and debate.

We believe a code of honor, integrity, and rationality is fundamental to individual success.

We oppose an environment in which ideological dogma, political correctness, or tribalism interfere with academic pursuits.

We unequivocally oppose totalitarianism and its apologists.
