Challenge of Liberty Summer Seminar

Introduction | Faculty | Lectures

After over 20 years of offering our highly-acclaimed Summer Seminars, the program is going into hiatus, as we pause to study and consider the current landscape and where and how Independent can best provide the highest impact in advancing liberty among the next generations. We will be reimagining and redesigning the program to make improvements to best prepare the current younger generation in being strong adherents of and advocates for liberty both during their college experience and throughout their lives and careers. We expect to offer a new seminar series in 2018. Stay tuned!
