The Hammond Institute is a research center at Lindenwood University. Its mission is to foster free enterprise and civil and religious liberty through the examination of market-oriented approaches to economic and social issues. This mission is based on the view that a limited government, such as that laid out in the Constitutional foundation of the United States, is a necessary component of a just and prosperous society.
The Institute is directed by Dr. Howard Wall and comprises three focus centers:
Reviving Charity Week:Week of events including talks by Star Parker and Robert Lupton, conferences on welfare reform and social entrepreneurship, Training for nonprofit leadership and community service. September 21-25.
