The Institute for Humane Studies is the leading institute in higher education dedicated to championing classical liberal ideas and the scholars who advance them.
At IHS, we believe the principles of the classical liberal tradition – including individual liberty and responsibility, limited government, economic freedom, the rule of law, free speech, and open inquiry – are the foundation of a just and prosperous world. And we believe that for those ideas to take root, they must be taught, explored, and challenged in higher education.
That’s why we have built the foremost network of scholars across the country who are leading the advancement of classical liberal principles.
Are you searching for new ways to present your ideas and collaborate with colleagues?
Don’t let financial constraints hold you back.
