The purpose of our Symposium is to bring to light the interaction of Free Market Principles and Academic Freedom in Higher Education: how it informs and advances our economy, our society, and our lives. The secondary purpose is to have professors and instructors meet like-minded people to network and establish support groups through their research. Finally, since our system of government depends on the Free Market remaining free, we need to teach our students that the Free Market is a morally good system for living, working and governing. We welcome any and all support in our endeavors.
