Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

About Us



The Ashbrook Center seeks to restore and strengthen the capacities of the American people for constitutional self-government. Ashbrook teaches students and teachers across our country what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world. Ashbrook creates informed patriots.

Ashbrook helps high school and undergraduate students understand why America is worthy of their study and love and equips students in our Ashbrook Scholar program to take leadership roles in our country’s civic life.


Through our website and online and on-site seminars and Masters program, Ashbrook is the only organization in the country that is positioned to take on the critical national challenge of preparing American History and Civics teachers to educate new generations of Americans.


Ashbrook offers educational programs, on and off of the Ashland University campus, as well as publications encouraging citizens to develop a deeper understanding of the principles upon which our great nation was founded.
