    The mission of the Center for Political and Economic Thought at Saint Vincent College is to promote scholarship and informed discussion on political, economic, and moral-cultural principles, problems, and controversies, and on the public policy questions arising out of them. The Center seeks to understand and reinforce the intellectual and social underpinnings of a free and well-ordered society, with a particular emphasis on the American experience. The programs of the Center are oriented toward the scholarly exposition of individual freedom, limited constitutional government, free market economics, and the philosophical and moral foundations of America and the West. The Center seeks to enhance the curricula of the Political Science, Economics, Public Policy, and Business Programs of Saint Vincent College; to provide an educational forum for the Saint Vincent community and the general public; and to contribute intellectually to the greater academic and public affairs communities.
