Students Standing Athwart History
William F. Buckley Jr. began his career as a public intellectual by writing God and Man at Yale, a scathing critique of his alma mater and its growing bias towards secular collectivism. Buckley understood how vitally important well-informed young people are to the survival of our principles, and he frequently spoke on college campuses throughout his illustrious career to promote the principles of classical liberalism and limited government. It was Buckley’s unyielding dedication to these principles that united the freedom movement and launched conservatism back into the political mainstream.
In this spirit, National Review Institute brings the National Review mission to students through events on college campuses across the nation to learn about the principles and ideas of a free society and empowers them to “stand athwart history.” Through events, workshops, conferences, social media, and disseminating NR magazine, NRI reaches today’s students and future influencers with timeless conservative ideas rooted in Buckley’s own powerful campus legacy.
About On Campus Events
On College Campuses
Though partnership with college groups, NRI brings National Review writers and NRI Fellows to speak at college campuses around the country. Our on-campus events take different forms, including lectures, roundtable discussions, debates, and seminars designed to engage as many students as possible on each campus that we visit. In the past, we have hosted events on topics ranging from foreign policy to pro-life issues and free speech to cultural commentary and academic discrimination, among others.

The William F. Buckley Jr. Communicators Program
National Review Institute has recently launched the William F. Buckley Jr. Communicators Program to teach the dying art of civility and diplomatic persuasion (as exemplified by William F. Buckley Jr.) to journalism, marketing, communications, and advertising students. The WFB Communicators Program engages and helps shape tomorrow’s influencers. Through virtual and in-person workshops, conferences, and mentorship by NR talent, NRI educates, equips, and empowers rising communicators—helping nurture a new generation of future influencers in the “Buckley way.”
