Center for the Study of Economic Liberty
The Center for the Study of Economic Liberty serves students and the public through research, education, and community outreach regarding the nation’s most pressing economic policy issues. Committed to communicating the role that economic liberty and free enterprise play in increasing opportunity and improving well-being, the Center seeks to advance understanding through independent thinking, scholarly debate, factual argument, and honest communication of research and policy findings.
Center for Political Thought and Leadership
The Center for Political Thought and Leadership develops leaders well-versed in the principles of liberal democracy. Its mission is to impart a deeper understanding of the meaning of political liberty and economic well-being to the academic and at-large community through undergraduate education, scholarly research, and public events. The Center adeptly provides a setting for national and international scholarship in political thought. It also acts as a forum for international, national, and state leaders involved in public affairs, as well as the legal and business community, to exchange and develop ideas about leadership in their respective fields within an academic setting.
"The core spirit of these endeavors is the nexus of great intellectual works with leadership and statesmanship for 21st century America and a globalized world."

How you make a difference
As a donor, you offer a SCETL student the opportunity to take an internship, study abroad, invite a guest speaker or coordinate a service project. Our donors invest in the ASU community, the Arizona community, and beyond.
A crucial premise of our constitutional democracy is an informed electorate, one that understands self-government and is inspired to participate. A core mission of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership is to help educators teach civics and to elevate civics literacy and informed citizenship in Arizona and beyond.
The school invites ASU students, staff and faculty, and the community to join us for conversations concerning civic life and leadership. The school hosts a robust schedule of speaker events, including an annual series aired on PBS Arizona. The school is dedicated to offer these events for its students and the community at no cost as a place to hold civil discourse around the pressing issues of our times.
Global Intensive Experiences
The school offers Global Intensive Experiences during academic breaks. During their travels, students research, explore, work, and collaborate with people from different backgrounds and perspectives in order to gain a deeper understanding of the important issues that they will need to consider in order to be effective, thoughtful, globally-conscious leaders.
