Student Reading Group

In the spring of 2019, the Liberty & Ethics Center became a host to an Intercollegiate Studies Institute book club. It meets Mondays during the semester at 4:30 to discuss books selected by club members. 

The Spring 2019 book was The Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt. For the Fall 2019 semester the club selected Alexis de Toqueville's Democracy in America. The selection for Spring 2020 is Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson.

Most student members are also Hammond Institute student fellows, who are eligible for travel and research support.
