Rancho Bernardo Inn's Championship Golf Course
Would 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.

We will be gathering at the magnificent Rancho Bernardo Inn, which is just a few miles north of San Diego. Its world-class facilities, resort amenities, spa, and immediate access to the best of San Diego make this special learning experience a tremendous vacation.

$925 – covers all meals, lectures, receptions, and books, but not the cost of overnight lodging. Since the 2007 Cato University was a sell-out at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, we recommend you enroll in this year’s program as soon as possible.

THE PROGRAM – Freedom’s Campaign in the 21st Century
Never attended Cato University before? 2008 is the perfect opportunity to join the Cato University community and become a graduate. At Cato University you’ll spend high-quality time with some of the best speakers (and minds!) in the country, in the company of fellow participants who share your love of freedom. The program’s detailed schedule – including faculty, session topics, and special evening presentations – will be posted soon. This we guarantee: your intellectual passions and commitment to freedom and liberty will be energized and enhanced by the totally new perspectives and sessions we are in the process of creating for our 2008 program.

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.
