Welcome to the website for the Visions of Freedom Living-Learning Community (LLC), Duke’s first living-learning community. We’re a group of Duke students with a passion for politics, philosophy, and economics. We also believe the best conversations don’t always happen in the classroom. They happen over a meal, during trip off-campus or in the middle of a “social” event. That’s why we’re striving to create a space for not-too-serious intellectual conversations outside of the classroom and traditional extracurricular settings.

We value intellectual diversity, because how can you have a good conversation if you always agree? We value respect for others’ opinions as well as a good comeback. While many of us major in political science and public policy, some of us major in biology. While a good number of us participated in FOCUS our freshman year, many of us did not. We have members from 10 minutes away and the other side of the world.
