The Center for Free Enterprise connects business education to human welfare and engages students in rigorous education about the principles and institutions needed for free individuals to flourish with dignity in a civil society.
The Center is a regional and national leader in free enterprise student engagement. Free enterprise exists where the rule of law, limited governance, and free markets intersect. It is based on the philosophy of individualism and freedom where individuals can utilize their inherent creativity for the benefit of themselves and others.
We are in the process of organizing this wonderful week of events.

History is absolutely crystal clear that there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.—Milton Friedman, 1979
The Center for Free Enterprise helps students understand and appreciate the important role free enterprise plays within the American economy. A free enterprise system promotes economic prosperity by creating a favorable environment where businesses compete with minimum regulatory interference, allowing them to develop vigorously providing wider gains from trade as they do so. Through extracurricular activities such as guest lectures, luncheons and off-campus seminars, students can explore the principles and institutions that sustain free enterprise.
