Harding named Top 10 school by Young America’s Foundation

Young America’s Foundation logoSEARCY – Harding University has been recommended by Young America’s Foundation as one of the top 10 conservative colleges in the United States. The announcement was made Monday by the organization, whose national headquarters are in Herndon, Va.

Young America’s Foundation named schools that offer a holistic conservative experience for students. This year’s list features 10 institutions that proclaim, through their mission and programs, a dedication to discovering, maintaining and strengthening the conservative values of their students. Most offer coursework and scholarship in conservative thought and emphasize principles of smaller government, strong national defense, free enterprise and traditional values. Many have a religious affiliation, but some do not.

Other schools to make the list include Christendom College in Virginia, College of the Ozarks in Missouri, Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, Grove City College in Pennsylvania, Hillsdale College in Michigan, Indiana Wesleyan University in Indiana, Liberty University in Virginia, Patrick Henry College in Virginia, and Thomas Aquinas College in California.

Each year Young America’s Foundation co-sponsors one or more presentations from Harding’s American Studies Institute Distinguished Lecture Series. Those have included Margaret Thatcher, William F. Buckley Jr., Lech Walesa, and the upcoming lecture by J.C. Watts.

The American Studies Institute also puts a strong emphasis on its entrepreneurial development programs. For example, the Belden Center for Private Enterprise Education, led by Dr. Don Diffine, educates students on the importance of freedom and private enterprise to the success of business.
