Join the #McConnellCenter as we host Trey Dimsdale to deliver a lecture titled "Rights Inflation? Can We Talk Too Much About Rights?"

Mr. Dimsdale, Director of the Center for Religion, Culture, and Democracy at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, 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.
