The Center for the Study of American Constitutionalism seeks to promote debate on
the definition of liberty, limited government and free markets, according to its
co-founder Anthony Peacock, professor and department head of Political Science.

And for that effort, the center has earned national recognition from the American Council of
Trustees and Alumni, an organization that in its own words seeks to “safeguard the free
exchange of ideas on campus” and foster “high academic standards.”

The ACTA has named the Center for the Study of American Constitutionalism as an “Oasis of
Excellence,” joining a roster of institutes such as Columbia University’s Center on Law and
Liberty, the Georgetown (University) Institute for the study of Markets and Ethics and the
Center for Liberal Arts and Free Institutions at University of California, Los Angeles.
