NRA on Campus

Coordinate.

As a freedom-loving student, we need your help to coordinate and develop pro-gun networks and opportunities for students on your campus and in the surrounding community.

Educate.

Our opponents often target college campuses as a prime location to ingrain so-called "facts" or Fake News and it is only through the efforts of campus leaders that we can restore the truth about the right to keep and bear arms. To be successful in the fight to keep this basic right, we must educate students on the Second Amendment, NRA, and the gun control debate and we need to teach them how to become better activists both on and off campus. 

Advocate.

Serve as a pro-Second Amendment voice on your college campus by effectively messaging NRA's principles, advocating for NRA-endorsed candidates, and pro-gun legislation while utilizing resources provided to you by the NRA!

Check out the different ways to get involved on your campus today!

As an NRA affiliated program, the NRA Collegiate Coalition chapter works with NRA-ILA staff and NRA Campus Coordinators to promote the Second Amendment on campus.

An NRA Campus Coordinator works to build a pro-Second Amendment network on campus. NRA Campus Coordinators may operate independently on campus, or be part of an NRA Collegiate Coalition Chapter.

NRA U is an interactive presentation where students learn about the history of the Second Amendment, the NRA, and the current gun debate. NRA staff travel to your campus to debunk anti-gun myths, answer questions from students, and inform students of opportunities to get involved locally.
