Best-Selling Author, Nationally Syndicated Radio Host and Constitutional Lawyer

Americans have lately been confronted with everything from media to marches representing opposing views of the U.S. Constitution and its importance.  Radio host and New York Times best-selling author Mark Levin offers a Conservative’s perspective in a new course released today, which is engaging thousands of students in the conversation.  His lecture is part of a first-ever multi-media series about “The American Conservative Tradition” called Conservatism101®, designed by university professor Christopher Malagisi.  The series is offered free online by The Leadership Institute and Free Think University® and presents “a rigorous examination of the American conservative intellectual tradition.”

Free Think University is hosting the Conservatism 101 courses on their website, with a new segment posted each week.  The 14 segments are each two-hour, multi-media experiences featuring a 45-minute lecture and related content from one of fourteen different conservative leaders.  Levin’s presentation is the fifth in the 14-part series. Check out this session here.

The lectures focus on the big questions of the conservatism movement – its origins and history, its driving principles, its successes and failings . . . and its future.  After each session, students may complete an assessment through which they earn points.  These points can be applied in frequently announced competitions for cash scholarships that help students pay for their higher education costs and other life learning experiences.

The lectures feature some of the Conservative movement’s most influential voices, including Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Stephen Moore from the Wall Street Journal, and Tony Perkins from the Family Research Council.

Free Think University partnered with Leadership Institute to produce original course content.  The series supplements its current library of nearly 50 Free Think U courses in the same format.  Already, more than 30,000 students have registered for classes or weekly alerts.

“No matter a person’s political leanings, Conservative, Liberal or otherwise, we think this collaborative project with Leadership Institute is an important contribution to a more civil dialogue about politics and the American experience,” said Free Think University cofounder Jim Van Eerden.

“Leadership Institute believes in equipping the next generation of leaders in America with a clear view of the values and ideals of the American Conservative Tradition,” said founder Morton Blackwell.  “We’re happy to help bring this world-class college course experience to thousands of students.
