The Center for America's Founding Principles exists to supplement Mercer University's excellent liberal arts program with a redoubled commitment to the foundational texts and ideas which have shaped Western Civilization and the American political order.
The Center is extremely grateful to Mercer Alumnus and former Trustee A.V. Elliott for his gift of $1 million. This gift will endow our annual conference, now renamed the A.V. Elliott Conference on Great Books and Ideas. Read the press release >
The Center’s programming includes an annual lecture series and academic conference, high school teacher and student workshops, faculty-student reading groups, and undergraduate research fellowships.
