A Student Leadership Conference in Indianapolis
Yes, America is deeply divided over politics and cultural issues. But why have we become so polarized?
One crucial factor receives far too little attention: the erosion of the institutions that historically formed the heart of American communities—family, church, civic groups, and more.
Is it too late to turn the tide?
Join like-minded students for an immersive weekend conference as we explore America’s institutions—why they are declining and what we can do to rebuild them. You will learn from some of the leading thinkers in the field and engage in discussions that could lead to lifelong friendships.
The speakers you’ll hear from include:
- Corey Brooks, the “rooftop pastor” known nationally for his efforts to rebuild his neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side
- Gracy Olmstead, whose acclaimed new book, Uprooted, explores rural “brain drain,” localism, and other issues
- Timothy P. Carney, who was a finalist for ISI’s Conservative Book of the Year award for his book Alienated America: Why Some Places Thrive While Others Collapse
- Michael Matheson Miller, an expert on economic development and the leader of PovertyCure
