The Tocqueville Program is dedicated to fostering the study of the role of religion in American democracy. Through classes, outreach seminars, conferences, and fellowships the Tocqueville Program seeks to create an energetic and stimulating environment for students, professors, the South Bend community, journalists, and policy makers.

It provides them the opportunity to discuss and better understand the role of religious faith, religious communities, and religious issues in American public life, and to encourage public awareness of the various historical and philosophical principles involved.

The Tocqueville Program in Religion and American Public Life is made possible by generous donations from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Orosz Family Foundation Endowment for Excellence in Religion and American Public Life as well as private donors including Alfonse D'Amato, Dan McGrogan, Frank Potenziani, Francis Rooney, and Mark Shields.

If you are interested in endowing a conference, funding a scholarship, or offering support to the Tocqueville Program please contact Vincent Phillip Munoz.
