The American Project


  • Engage Across Differences

“The American Project: On the Future of Conservatism” is a multi-year program to propel innovative ideas for reimagining the future of America’s conservative movement. The American Project is led by School of Public Policy Dean Pete Peterson, and co-director, Rich Tafel. “As a program founded by the likes of James Q. Wilson, Jack Kemp, and many other leading center-right leaders and scholars, Pepperdine School of Public Policy is honored to be chosen to be the home for this critical initiative,” Dean Peterson stated. “This is a critical time in our nation’s history to be considering the impact America’s conservative movement can and should have on our politics and policy.”
