The Center for the Liberal Arts and Free Institutions at the University of California – Los Angeles, a JMC partner program, is committed to the beliefs that: 1) an educated citizen in a democracy should have a sound understanding of the history of free institutions and their underlying principles, 2) that a central purpose of a university is to assist and encourage students, faculty, and others to confront basic questions of the meaning of life, the nature of the cosmos and of human society, and the principles of right and wrong, and 3) that the study of great works and achievements of western and other civilizations, not uncritically but with the presumption that we have much to learn from our greatest forerunners, is a valuable if not indispensable means of education directed toward the principles of free institutions and the fundamental questions we face as individuals.
