Welcome to the American Agora

The American Agora is American University's home for public policy commentary and analysis. We aim to elevate public discourse about important issues, and we welcome ideological diversity. 

The American Agora was founded in February 2017 and has now published more than 100 articles on a variety of topics. On this website, you can find our columns, written debates, and podcasts. 

The Agora is American University's only student media outlet dedicated solely to political commentary. You can read coverage of the Agora in the Eagle and Study Breaks magazine.

In addition to our publications, the American Agora strives to bring relevant political figures to speak at American University. In February 2018, we hosted Congressman John Delaney of Maryland, the first declared candidate for president in 2020.

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter, with our podcasts on Stitcher and wherever else you get your podcasts.

We are always looking for new people to join the American Agora.
