2016 CCS Symposium on Religious Liberty | April 11-12

The religious liberty symposium was hosted in partnership with the Religious Studies Program at UVU and the 2016 Mormon Studies Conference on “Mormonism and the Art of Boundary Maintenance.” Working together allowed both entities to cover a fascinating spectrum of topics, from Mormon Identity to the Supreme Court case, Little Sisters of the Poor v. Burwell, currently going through the courts.

The 2016 symposium also featured the first panel dedicated specially to UVU students and the winners of the first CCS religious liberty essay contest.


Keynote Ross Douthat

Mission Statement

The Center is a nonpartisan academic institute that promotes the instruction, study, and research of constitutionalism. In particular, it examines important constitutional issues found at the intersections of political thought, public policy, religion, law, history, and economics. It employs a multidisciplinary approach to more effectively equip a new generation of citizens and leaders with a broad understanding of political thought and economic and political practices critical to the perpetuation of constitutional government, ordered liberty, and the rule of law.

The Center for Constitutional Studies is located on the third floor of the UVU Library
