We’re pleased to announce the opening of the Philadelphia headquarters of the Jack Miller Center, an educational organization dedicated to “strengthen the teaching of America’s founding principles and history”. The institute, founded by Chicago businessman Jack Miller, and led by Mike Ratliff, plans to offer two-week summer institutes for professors, support for “partnered” academic programs, and National conclaves on the American founding.
The Summer Institutes, held at the University of Virginia and Colorado, will offer seminars on selected topics in American history, political thought, or economics, and attend workshops that assist them in developing courses, securing tenure, publishing and long-term professional advancement.” Attendees will additionally receive grants to aid efforts to improve curricular offerings on the American founding at their colleges. All program costs are covered. For more information about the institutes, contact Mike Deshaies at firstname.lastname@example.org. For any other information, look to the site.
