Liberty in Action

The purpose of Liberty in Action is to advance the mission of Universidad Francisco Marroquín, using an interdisciplinary learning model, in which students apply the principles of liberty to societal challenges: devising and creating prototype private, voluntary, and free market solutions. Liberty in Action courses, a requirement for all the university’s students, facilitate collaborative experiences, where participants develop their entrepreneurial mindset.

The specific objectives of Liberty in Action are: 1) to be a laboratory for private solutions to social challenges, 2) to strengthen individual choice and peaceful and voluntary cooperation, 3) to teach the principles of a free society in innovative ways, and 4) to reduce space for government intervention.

On a broader scale, these learning experiences are intended to accelerate human progress through private solutions, to bring about a cultural shift whereby government is no longer seen as the sole source of solutions to social problems.
