The Center for American Studies

Christopher Newport University’s Center for American Studies promotes undergraduate and faculty research on America’s founding principles and history, economic foundations, and national security in order to promote sensible notions of political liberty, economic liberty, and civic responsibility.

We sponsor undergraduate programming, curricular development, annual conferences, national security workshops and research at the undergraduate and postdoctoral levels.

As Thomas Jefferson observed, the survival of a democracy requires an educated public. Unfortunately, there is significant reason to conclude that American universities no longer provide a sufficient education in the major political and military issues of the day. We are dedicated to reversing this troubling trend.

Because the students who are currently enrolled in America’s colleges will soon shoulder the responsibilities of leading this country, it is imperative that American colleges reinvigorate the education of tomorrow’s leaders.
