The University of Kentucky Campus Progressive Coalition (CPC) is a collection of 10 UK student organizations that unite under progressive ideals. We work pro-actively for democracy, justice, equality, and acceptance of diversity in our campus and society. The CPC groups are completely individual and independent organizations, but have joined this coalition to show mutual support for each other’s causes.

The following is a short description of each group, its mission, meeting times, and a contact for the group.
