Rancho Bernardo Inn's Championship Golf CourseWould you like to meet like-minded people from all over the world? Or have a spectacular vacation while sharing ideas on how freedom will be advanced, enhanced, and defended? If so, Cato University is definitely for you.

Cato University is the Cato Institute’s premier educational event of the year. This annual program brings together outstanding faculty and participants from across the country and, often, from around the globe – business and professional people, retirees, small business owners, high school and college students, employees of large and small firms and many others who share a commitment to liberty and learning.

In addition, Cato University has become for many an opportunity to create a family legacy of liberty – with parents participating with children; grandparents sharing the experience with grandchildren; and, all three generations joining together.

And – are you interested in another type of learning experience – own your own, at your own pace? We are delighted to now have the Cato University Home Study Course available. The 12 modules of this program are available separately or together – as downloads or on CD.
