The J. Dennis Hastert Center for Economics, Government and Public Policy was established in 2008 to advance the training of Wheaton College students and the greater community in the understanding of market economies, representative democracies, limited government, and the redeeming effects of the Christian worldview on the practice of business, government, and politics.
Perhaps now more than ever this mission is essential. Recent developments in the global economy and the downfall of one public figure after another highlight the absence of and need for a solid ethical foundation in government and the marketplace. In this climate, the Hastert Center is equipping leaders of today and tomorrow to think Christianly about their endeavors.
In order to advance this mission, the Center conducts various programs to promote student and faculty development, community involvement, and research opportunities. Currently, the Center is hoping to expand its offerings which include student internships and research opportunities, faculty mentoring, a public lecture series, and an 8 week student immersion program during which students can study the culture, politics, and economics of their host countries.
The Hastert Center is seeking $2 million to fully develop these programs. Consider making an investment in tomorrow’s public policy through the J. Dennis Hastert Center.
