Charles Carroll of Carrollton
The only Catholic signer of The Declaration of Independence
|The Charles Carroll Program at the College of the Holy Cross promotes the study of the major themes of the American political tradition, which we believe are distinctly connected to the College’s broader commitment to the liberal arts and Jesuit education. Drawing inspiration from the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, The Charles Carroll Program works to keep these themes at the forefront of debate on campus both by investigating their roots in the western philosophical tradition and by emphasizing their connection to contemporary issues. Through public events such as lectures and conferences we seek to engage the campus community in discussions about important ethical and political themes; through our postdoctoral teaching fellowship we seek to both bring these themes into the classroom and to prepare the next generation of faculty; and through our student fellows and summer research fellowship program we connect these themes to the instruction of our students.
