ON-Lion Letter

Throughout the months of June and July, the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) explores the principles of freedom, limited government, and free enterprise with undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation and around the globe through its 2016 Summer Seminar series.

These seminars examine history, economics, philosophy, and other disciplines from a libertarian perspective by giving students a chance to discuss and debate ideas with faculty dedicated to promoting the principles of classical liberalism.  Some of the titles of the 2016 seminar sessions include: "Justice, Equality, and Liberty:  A Moral Examination of Freedom:" "Liberty & Society:  Rights, Government, and Civility:" and "Origins, Tensions, and Impacts of Classical and Modern Liberalism." 

These sessions are hosted at Bryn Mawr College in Philadelphia and at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. As they deepen their understanding of the texts and ideas that inform the classical liberal tradition, participants also build networks with like-minded peers and advanced scholars, discover potential career possibilities, and hone their critical thinking skills.

In addition to offering its Summer Seminars, IHS engages with students and professors around the country to encourage the study and advancement of freedom through a wide variety of programs.  From hosting campus events and online videos for undergraduates, to providing funding and other career-development resources for graduate students and professors, IHS educates college students about the nature of liberty, develops new academic talent, and supports the flourishing of freedom-friendly scholars.
