Finalists announced for Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy

The University of Colorado Boulder today announced three finalists for the inaugural Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy. This month, the finalists will make one-day campus visits, during which they will hold public forums.

Since last summer, an advisory committee has been working to identify finalists. The committee has sought a “highly visible” scholar who is “deeply engaged in either the analytical scholarship or practice of conservative thinking and policymaking or both.”
