The Linda L. Bean Conference Center

 A Beacon on a Hill

The Linda L. Bean Center will provide students a dedicated campus for their education in liberty and will be a safe-haven for conservatives to contemplate the permanent things.




With a visionary lead gift of $5 million from ISI trustee Linda L. Bean, successful entrepreneur and granddaughter of the founder of L.L. Bean, ISI will open a permanent home for its educational program by Labor Day 2022. The Linda L. Bean Conference Center will complement ISI’s existing headquarters and serve as a “Counter-University,” shaping promising young conservatives into principled and virtuous leaders.

“ISI has worked steadfastly to preserve our nation’s founding principles and values. Nothing is more important than giving that effort a permanent home for understanding the pathways to liberty.”—Linda L. Bean
