Campus & Community

Promoting greater understanding of the nation’s past is a collective endeavor. The Kinder Institute has designed a number of programs, ranging from monthly reading groups to public lectures, that bring leaders in the fields of American political thought and history together with members of the MU, Columbia, and Missouri communities to discuss ideas, figures, and events that have been central to the development of constitutional democracy in the United States.
