Toward a Free and Virtuous Society conferences are intensive seminars for religious and business leaders.

The purpose of these events is to explore the role of religion in laying the conceptual foundation for a society characterized by both personal and economic liberty.  The event's first half focuses on several key concepts such as Christian anthropology, economic thinking, and limited government, while the second half offers a practical approach, as the participants contemplate the practical implications resulting from the theories considered.  Each lecture and discussion session is designed by our faculty to minimize partisanship and maximize the exploration of ideas.

The program is intellectually demanding; participants are required to do advanced reading and must be prepared to offer comments and defend their views during the question and answer sessions.
