Join the #McConnellCenter as we host author and
writer Grace Olmstead to deliver a lecture titled "The Power of the
Particular: Tocqueville's Vision for Stewardship in
Ms. Olmstead speaks
as part of the "Tocqueville's America - and Ours" series.
"Tocqueville's America - and Ours" is the McConnell Center's
2023-2024 programming, focused on studying Alexis de Tocqueville's
19th century work, "Democracy in America."
Long considered a
classic consideration of the origins, evolution, and future of
democratic self-governance in America, we seek to read, understand,
and examine Tocqueville's analysis and its implications for the
United States today.
Founded in 1991,
the non-partisan McConnell Center at the University of Louisville
seeks to identify, recruit and nurture Kentucky's next generation
of great leaders. Our core principles—leadership, scholarship and
service—guide us as we (1) prepare top undergraduate students to
become future leaders; (2) offer civic education programs for
teachers, students and the public; and (3) conduct strategic
leadership development for the U.S. Army.
