Association for the Study of Free Institutions


402.554.4862


The Association for the Study of Free Institutions is a scholarly organization seeking to promote multi-disciplinary inquiry into the free society – its philosophic, cultural, and institutional conditions, its character, its strengths and limitations, and the challenges it faces. ASFI works to unite scholars from a variety of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities – political science, history, law, economics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, theology, classics, education – in order to revive the study of freedom as a major concern of American higher education. Mindful that the questions to which freedom gives rise are often controversial, that freedom carries certain costs, and that we have things to learn even from its most determined critics, ASFI welcomes intellectual diversity. It seeks the participation of scholars representing not only a variety of intellectual disciplines, but also a diversity of moral and philosophical positions.

Hispanic Theological Initiative

Through its scholarship program, HTI has sought to increase the number of Latinos who would otherwise not consider further theological education or complete their doctoral degree for lack of financial assistance. Through its mentoring, networking and community building components HTI has endeavored to help students overcome the sometimes overwhelming sense of isolation and marginalization traditionally encountered by Latinos pursuing doctoral studies.
