Education

UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: We value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of our pursuits, we strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie our three institutional responsibilities. Learning and teaching at UCLA are guided by the belief that undergraduate, graduate and professional school students and their teachers belong to a community of scholars. This community is dedicated to providing students with a foundational understanding of a broad range of disciplines followed by the opportunity for in-depth study in a chosen discipline. All members of the community are engaged together in discovering and advancing knowledge and practice. Learning occurs not only in the classroom but also through engagement in campus life and in communities and organizations beyond the university.

California State University, Long Beach (also known as Cal State Long Beach, Long Beach State, CSULB, LBSU, or The Beach) is the second largest campus of the 23 school California State University system (CSU) and one of the largest universities in the state of California by enrollment, its student body numbering 36,279 for the Fall 2012 semester.

Grove City College was founded in 1876. From our inception we have endeavored to provide our students with an excellent education at an affordable cost and from a Judeo-Christian worldview. The College offers an excellent classical liberal arts education by dedicated faculty who are experts in their field. With over 50 programs of study and a curriculum designed to educate the whole person, students are equipped with both specialized knowledge in their chosen major as well as cultural understanding to be leaders across a diverse range of professional fields and industries. Located in a picturesque Pennsylvania town an hour north of Pittsburgh, our students enjoy a campus life that stretches their thinking outside the classroom by engaging in sports, the arts, clubs and other extracurricular activities. And when they graduate, they became part of a worldwide alumni association that provides close personal and professional relationships for a lifetime. Students also enjoy a thriving spiritual life as part of a community that values freedom to explore faith. We practice what we preach. Grove City College maintains competitively low charges along with its superior academic program. The College operates on a balanced budget, refuses federal aid and remains virtually debt-free, proving that higher education can operate responsibly by providing an affordable, first-rate education without government funding or mandates

The Mont Pelerin Society is composed of persons who continue to see the dangers to civilized society outlined in the statement of aims. They have seen economic and political liberalism in the ascendant for a time since World War II in some countries but also its apparent decline in more recent times. Though not necessarily sharing a common interpretation, either of causes or consequences, they see danger in the expansion of government, not least in state welfare, in the power of trade unions and business monopoly, and in the continuing threat and reality of inflation.
