Board of Visitors


Members of the board are a collection of national policy, business, and community leaders who support our mission and share our commitment to a more expansive approach to public policy, an approach that recognizes the central importance of civil society, faith, and free-markets. Most importantly, board members share our strong belief that public leadership, perhaps more than any other field, requires a strong moral and ethical paradigm.
