FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

Dedicated to the promotion of American founding principles, the rule of law, and the preservation of liberty.  The Center for Law & Liberty at HBU consists of dedicated teachers, scholars, and lawyers who defend the principles that make America an exceptional nation.

TEACHER WORKSHOPS

We offer professional development opportunities for educators interested in history, government, economics, and the principles of the American Founding.  Together, we’ll explore great texts and great ideas through special workshops and seminars throughout the year.

CAMPUS CURRICULUM

We’ve developed special courses so our students at HBU understand the historical and intellectual influences that shaped our nation.  We want all our students to graduate with an appreciation of the principles on which our nation was built and the ability to explain those principles to others.

ENGAGE COMMUNITY

Our dedicated faculty enjoy engaging with the community for lectures, guest speakers, and special events.  If you need a dynamic speaker to discuss the American Founding, history, politics, or economics with your group, we’re want to help!
