Welcome to CUCA!
The Cambridge University Conservative Association has been around for almost 100 years. Over those decades – from year to year – the character of CUCA has evolved and shifted with keen Conservatives, future MPs and those just interested in politics and meeting like-minded people passing through its doors.
Today, CUCA strives to fulfil three goals:
1. To be a mouthpiece for Cambridge students’ views in the Conservative Party
2. To communicate the Conservative Party’s policies to students in Cambridge
3. To bring those interested in politics – be they of the Right or Left – together for political and social events
CUCA has a proud history of furthering Conservatism in Cambridge and of producing first tier politicians with Kenneth Clarke, Douglas Hurd, Norman Fowler and Andrew Mitchell amongst its former chairmen. But it’s not all about aspiring politicians! CUCA simply provides a great forum for people to come together and talk.
This Michaelmas is going to be a very active and fun term, and we will be releasing details about our our fantastic events programme very soon! If you’re a fresher coming up to Cambridge this October then watch this space closely.
CUCA welcomes the diverse nature of Conservatism and is ready to engage with views across the political spectrum, so whether you are of a Conservative persuasion or are merely inquisitive and interested in political affairs, I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful range of events.
