The School of American Studies began at Harding on September 15, 1952. For nearly 70 years, its purpose has been to inspire lives of leadership by exposing students to people, places, and ideas that have helped shape the United States. The American Studies Institute continues this long tradition by promoting a better understanding of the constitution, of capitalism and free enterprise, and of the intersections of faith and civil life.

We invite you to join us as we continue the tradition of engaging with the campus and the community on issues vital to the story of the United States of America -- its history, its constitution, its economic system, its government, and its people.
