The Center for American Institutions and the Political History and Leadership program at Arizona State University are committed to civic education for students and the larger community.

The mission of the PHL Engaging Citizenship Luncheons is to provide a deeper understanding of critical political and cultural issues confronting our nation. These meetings provide an opportunity for attendees from the community to deepen their understanding of issues including free speech, elections, constitutional rights, education, biotechnology and religious freedom.
