An active Republican Liberty Caucus member has been chosen as Program Manager for Students for Liberty. SFL was formed in 2008 to provide a unified, student-driven forum of support for students and student organizations dedicated to liberty.
Clark Ruper has held campus leadership roles with the University of Michigan Young Americans for Freedom, College Libertarians, and Students of Objectivism.
Clark “first discovered Students For Liberty at the 2009 International Conference. I was instantly blown away by the quality of the organization and the enthusiasm of its members. I think this enthusiasm stems from the fact that Students For Liberty meets a market need in our movement.” He says, “Most libertarian student activists across the country … have long been isolated from one another and the resources necessary to reach their full potential. I see Students For Liberty as a bridge between the individual student activist and the resources of the growing pro-liberty movement, a group that can take our youth activities to levels never seen before.”
Before becoming active with SFL, Clark was on the Board of Directors of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Michigan. He is a firm believer in political activism and chooses to work within the Republican Party while adhering to a consistent belief in individual liberty, personal responsibility, and small government.
The RLC has already forged a working relationship with Students for Liberty – we participated in a SFL-sponsored debate at their 2009 International Conference — and we look forward to a continued partnership with Students for Liberty as we work vigorously to expand our base of support for our cherished principles.
Clark’s Students for Liberty office will be housed at the Cato Institute. Thanks to Alexander McCobin and the SFL Board of Directors for selecting Clark Ruper to lead the student liberty movement forward.
