Programs We Support

The Foundation for Constitutional Government is pleased to support the Program on Constitutional Government at Harvard University.  The Program on Constitutional Government is associated with the Center for American Political Studies in the Department of Government at Harvard University. It was founded in 1985 by Harvey Mansfield and William Kristol, and guided since then by Mansfield and R. Shep Melnick of Boston College. The Program promotes the study of the U.S. Constitution and its principles, combining the fields of political theory and American government. It brings visiting professors to Harvard, invites guest speakers, and supports postdoctoral fellowships. It seeks to improve the access of Harvard students to political debate by ensuring that the principle of diversity is not confined to favored classes of Americans but extended to political opinion—since it is the interest of all that both sides be heard.
