Gary Gregg is the Director of the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville, a nonpartisan program that attracts the best and brightest students from around Kentucky and prepares them for careers in effective leadership. Since 2000, he has also held the Mitch McConnell Chair in Leadership at the University of Louisville. His research interests include the political thought of C.S. Lewis, George Washington and the formation of his character, the presidency and public politics, representation and American political institutions, and the political and constitutional thought of the American founding. Gregg has written or edited several books, including Securing Democracy: Why We Have an Electoral College (ISI, 2001).
The mission of the John Dickinson Forum for the Study of America’s Founding Principles, a JMC partner program, is to promote thoughtful study, discussion, and debate about America’s founding principles. It hopes to encourage conversations about whether or how these principles are relevant today. The Forum supports a variety of activities including lectures, book/current event discussion groups, and debates. It also partners with other institutions to make programming available to students at other schools and to the general public throughout the Pacific Northwest.
This event is supported by Jack Miller Center’s Pacific Northwest Initiative: Advancing Education in America’s Founding Principles and History. Thanks to the generous grant from MJ Murdock Charitable Trust, JMC is working with faculty to organize exciting campus events in the region. The Initiative also provides programs, conferences and other opportunities for professors in the PNW—all to help them make a difference in the education of their students.
