McConnell Center


Join us as the McConnell Center celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016 with a series of public events on the theme of "Citizens and Statesman. Since 1991, the Center has nurtured more than 200 McConnell Scholars, awarding them more than $3.5 million in scholarships. It has provided tens of thousands of hours of professional development to more than 1,000 Kentucky teachers. It has provided tens of thousands of pocket Constitutions to Kentucky’s young students. Its lectures, books, studies and conferences have garnered international attention, with the American Council of Trustees and Alumni recently naming the Center “an oasis of excellence in higher education.”
