Core Initiatives

Educating Students

The Johnson Center seeks to provide students with a dynamic and rigorous education in the analytical discipline of economics with a strong emphasis on understanding the vital role that market institutions play in fostering economic prosperity.

Scholarship and Research

The Johnson Center seeks to foster an active intellectual environment by encouraging faculty in the continual pursuit of academic scholarship that advances the frontiers of political economy.

Community Outreach

The Johnson Center seeks to stay actively engaged with the community through outreach initiatives that cultivate the virtues of entrepreneurship, individual responsibility, free enterprise, leadership, and openness.

Policy Debates

Rapid increases in state and federal spending, coupled with higher taxes, increased regulation, and loose monetary policy make it necessary for a return to the sound application of basic economics in public policy debates. The Johnson Center is well positioned to be a leading research center informing these debates by advancing our understanding and appreciation of economic freedom.
