The Leadership Institute





The Leadership Institute identifies and assists students and others who would like to bring Conservatism 101 to a college campus.

Founded in 1979, the Leadership Institute increases the number and effectiveness of conservative students, activists, and leaders in the public policy process. To accomplish this mission, the Institute identifies, recruits, trains, and places conservatives in government, politics, and the media.


  Intercollegiate Studies Institute





The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) helps develop academic syllabi for Conservatism 101 classes, identifies and recruits conservative faculty, and provides guest lecturers.

Founded in 1953, ISI works “to educate for liberty” — to identify the best and the brightest college students and to nurture in these future leaders the American ideal of ordered liberty. To accomplish this goal, ISI seeks to enhance the rising generation’s knowledge of our nation’s founding principles — limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility, the rule of law, market economy, and moral norms.
