“TRADITION CANNOT BE INHERITED, AND IF YOU WANT IT YOU MUST OBTAIN IT BY GREAT LABOUR.” – T.S. ELIOT
We’re committed to guiding students as they seek to take their part in the great conversation identified by Russell Kirk in his many books, especially in his landmark The Conservative Mind. It’s why we bring together some of today’s most thoughtful writers to show how the permanent things continue guide the conservative imagination.

Take a look at our upcoming events below, and if you have an idea for an event or would like to bring Kirk on Campus to your college or university, get in touch through the form at right.
