Unification Principles


We all come from the same common source, a God of love

We all ultimately want to experience joy

Each person is a valuable part of humanity

We have the freedom to create and manifest any possibility

We mature through pursuing truth, beauty and goodness

We can develop genuine relationships through sincere, selfless interaction

We contribute to society through mastery of our unique creativity


Who can get involved?

We welcome any student who wants to build a community that positively impacts their campus and also gain the practical skills necessary for personal development and fulfillment.

What does CARP do?




Local CARP chapters meet on a regular basis to discuss and apply principles important to their life. Whether it is facilitating a discussion, sharing a personal testimony, watching a video, or other activity, students have the time to reflect and examine what’s important to them.




School can be stressful! Chapters host or partner to help students de-stress in a positive, uplifting, and nourishing environment.



Yearly/Per Semester

We believe we can gain personal fulfillment through helping others. And, there are so many ways to serve the campus community, whether through fun or thoughtful events or good old-fashioned service work - anything we can do to promote understanding, personal growth, and peace!

What’s in it for me?

  • Lasting friendships with people who care – Weekly discussions will fuel a deeper understanding of one another.

  • Broadened Perspectives – Each member learns to keep an open mind and see things from new point of views, while respecting each other.

  • Leadership skills – Chapter leaders are given formal leadership training on top of the management experience they will gain. Members and officers also have the option to receive training if they desire.

  • Communication skills – A rotation of “talks” shared by each member will inevitably result in excellent communication skills for all involved parties.

The Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP) is a 501(c)(3) certified nonprofit organization. Our main objective is to assist students across America in personal development by building a large network of students who share ideas and perspectives around CARP’s Unification Principles and core values which can aid young adults in forming authentic relationships.
