Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University works to enhance public understanding of the most important issues relating to faith, family, and freedom.
Meet our team of public policy professionals and issue experts, working to uphold faith, family, and freedom as the keys to America’s future.
We offer a series of programs designed to support civil discourse by bringing forward clear and thoughtful ideas from our state and nation’s thought leaders.
Each month in Centennial Review, we publish essays on the fundamentals of a free and just society, adapted from speeches given by leading voices at our think tank or in the CCU community. Read this month’s Centennial Review to find out what we’re discussing.
As Colorado Christian University’s think tank, we draw on the expertise of CCU Faculty, Centennial Institute Fellows, and other skilled policy analysts to provide background and recommendations on current issues facing policymakers in Colorado and the nation.
