An Editor's Note

An Editor's Note


The Editorial Team of The Columbia Political Review would like to reaffirm a critical point that can be easily forgotten in the consideration of a topic as emotionally-charged as politics: as a multi-partisan publication, we do not endorse the particular viewpoints expressed by the authors we publish.

At CPR, we aim to promote and cultivate lively, enriching discussions of salient political issues, and we believe the most productive way of doing so is to publish the work of students of all political stripes.

If you would like to contribute to one of the ongoing or future discussions, our Web Editor, Stewart Shoemaker, always welcomes submissions. He can be reached at
