Civic and Economic Literacy

The Civic Literacy Initiative seeks to prepare graduates for informed and engaged participation in the civic and economic life of their local and national communities. To this end, CSLD is developing a series of events, workshops, symposia, and courses centered on these themes: protection of the natural rights of individuals, economic freedom and open markets, the rule of law, equal protection of the laws, constitutional rights and responsibilities, and the virtues of free and responsible citizenship. The project envisions hiring two post-doctoral fellows to help develop and teach new civic and economic literacy courses, with particular interest in scholars specializing in political theory, constitutionalism, economic history, or other relevant fields.
