The Institute for Advancing American Values encourages conversation between multiple viewpoints to spur engagement, understanding and human connection. Institute activities include public events to encourage dialogue about central issues facing Idaho and the nation, and research and projects that approach complex and contested issues through the prism of American values and evidenced-based research. Other activities involve education programming supporting the development of new courses across the disciplines that chart how the values of freedom, opportunity, democracy, free expression and other values have shaped the triumphs and challenges of universities and American life generally.
