    ISI’s Principles of Liberty conference is designed for the undergraduate seeking a deeper dive into the values and principles that culminate in the American experiment. 

    If you’re interested in history, philosophy, politics, or economics and desire a more holistic understanding of the American intellectual tradition, then you are a perfect candidate for the Principles of Liberty conference.  

    This five-day conference will be held at ISI’s beautiful headquarters, a converted estate situated on a bucolic twenty-acre property overlooking a reservoir.

    You’re in for a memorable experience. You’ll not only engage in rich discussion and debate with thoughtful students from around the country. You’ll also make friends, meet mentors, and discover a community of like-minded, intellectually curious people.

    The Principles of Liberty conference will be held June 12–16. Can’t make those dates? You may want to consider applying to the ISI Honors Program, whose weeklong summer conference will be held August 4–10. You’ll find more information on the Honors Program here.
