Free political societies need to be informed and thoughtful societies. Research and teaching in American political thought goes hand in hand with educating American citizens and citizen-leaders. We are committed to furthering these important goals.
From undergraduate conferences and symposia to scholarly meetings and lecture series, we sponsor events that illuminate American political principles and inspire thoughtful civic engagement.
We support scholarship in American political thought through our sponsorship of research journals and special projects, and through our support of visiting and affiliated scholars.
The Center for Political Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University and civic education nonprofit the Joe Foss Institute have entered a collaboration agreement to continue the expansion of civic education in schools nationwide.
The agreement, effective Nov. 1, integrates the Joe Foss Institute’s robust civic education resources into the Center for Political Thought and Leadership, which advances research in American political thought and supports civic education inside and outside the classroom.
As a research-intensive center, the Center for Political Thought and Leadership is concerned to further the understanding and development of American political thought, broadly understood. This takes the form of supporting publication outlets, special projects, and individual scholars.
