On-Campus Events

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

Sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, these events examine the big questions surrounding society from a classical liberal perspective, often across a broad range of disciplines. Participants are encouraged to explore and debate ideas through breakout and Q&A sessions.

On-campus events are free to attend, although some do require advance registration. Unless otherwise noted, lodging for multi-day events is the participant’s responsibility.

View the map below to see all of our upcoming events. If you have any questions about on-campus events, please email us at OnCampusEd@TheIHS.org.
