    Acton University is back in person in 2022! Acton University is not your typical conference. It’s a four-day celebration with hundreds of your newest liberty-loving friends from all over the world. Each day is packed with thought-provoking presentations on the intellectual foundations of a free society. This year you can participate in person and online, with a special curated virtual experience for those who want to engage with Acton University from the comfort of their home.

    The momentous times in which we are living, from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to soaring inflation, underscore the importance of examining the principles that lead to creating and sustaining free and virtuous societies that ensure human flourishing. Acton University routinely impacts lives, as past attendee Nelson Obinna Omenugha of Nigeria boldly affirms: “Acton Institute no doubt is the breeding ground for great conscientious leaders.”
