IHS On-Campus Events

IHS On-Campus events bring together passionate students to discover and discuss solutions to the biggest problems facing our society. Our weekend seminars, panels, debates and lectures create an environment where enthusiastic professors talk with students, not at them.

Events examine the problems facing society from a classical liberal perspective, and participants are encouraged to explore and debate ideas in lovely breakout and Q&A sessions. All events are free to attend, though advance registration is required for some. Unless otherwise noted, lodging for multi-day events is the responsibility of participants.

On-Campus events are free to attend, although some events do require advance registration. If you have any questions about on-campus events, please email us at oncampused@theihs.org.
