The Tory Party

The Tory Party is the foremost society of conservatives within the Yale Political Union and the party of reasoned conservatism at Yale. Founded in 1969, our Party is known for a thriving alumni network; a strong tendency towards the British aesthetic; and our fondness for speeches delivered with wit and levity. Tory debates cover a broad spectrum of topics, running the gamut from current events, modern politics, history, philosophy, aesthetics, popular culture, and campus life. The Tory Party requires all members to identify as “conservative” but does not maintain any party line, inviting conservatives of all kinds to petition for membership, and those of all political ideologies to visit the Tory floor.
