Lectures, Debates and Panels

Ideas matter

Throughout the academic community, conversations are taking place—conversations between students and professors that question how we can create a more just, peaceful, and thriving world. These conversations force us to dissect our assumptions about how society functions best.

We want more of these conversations

That’s why our professors host lectures, debates, and panels on-campus, allowing you to join with your friends and professors to examine the ideas of classical liberalism and learn more about today’s most pressing issues.

Hear what some of our recent attendees had to say about our past events:

“Before the lecture, I was thinking of corruption as something that a powerful person does. But, ability to be corrupted includes those without power. I now see that anyone, regardless of power, is possibly exposed to being corrupt.”

“This presentation brought to light a topic I was not aware of: consolidation of hospitals. I felt more enlightened about the status of health care in the United States after this lecture.”

“The speaker was easy to listen to and it felt relevant to what I’ll do after I graduate as an elementary education major.”
