Neal McCluskey: Reviving the Spirit of Inquiry in Higher Education

Published February 25, 2015

Heartland’s Heather Kays speaks with Associate Director of the Center for Educational Freedom at the Cato Institute Neal McCluskey about a recent Cato forum, which focused on limited political ideologies presented in U.S. Colleges. Their conversation questions if and how academic centers can introduce additional perspectives to academia. 

The event discussed by Kays and McCluskey was held February 5 and included: C. Bradley Thompson, executive director for the Study of Capitalism at Clemson University; Christopher Hill, fellow at The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization; John A. Allison, president and CEO of the Cato Institute, and former Chairman and CEO of BB&T Corporation; and Jay Schalin, director of policy analysis at the John W. Pope Center for Education Policy. McCluskey moderated the forum. 

The forum participants spoke about Western civilization, free markets and various conservative and libertarian ideas.
