The Campus Liberty Tour

Launched in 2018, the Steamboat Institute’s Campus Liberty Tour (CLT) has quickly become one of our pillar programs and is poised for national expansion.

Through CLT, we seek to bring respectful, robust and reasoned debates and dialogues to college campuses across America, encouraging critical thinking skills.  To combat blatant attacks on free speech and open discourse of ideas, we created CLT to help college students learn how to think, not what to think.

With high-profile speakers and an emphasis on civilized debate and discourse, we have engaged and persuaded thousands of young people of the value of rhetoric, reason, and persuasion.
