The ninth Law, Justice and Culture Institute, held May 14-25 at Trinity Christian College, attracted 15 talented students representing eight schools. Among these schools were three new institutions—Regent University, Northern Michigan University, and Ripon College. During the last decade, the Center, through its Institute, has educated 130 students from 28 colleges and universities, awarding more than $61,000 in financial assistance.

At the conclusion of the two-week Institute, a graduation dinner was attended by more than 75 people. A highlight of the evening was an interview with Martin Ozinga III, who spoke on “The American Experiment and the Ozinga Family Story.” Several students gave a testimonial about how the Institute affected their lives, including Andrew Wingard, a sophomore from Regent University who described the Institute as both groundbreaking and rewarding.

The Institute awards three academic credits to students who successfully complete the requirements of the two-week session, during which students attend classes, hear guest speakers, and complete assignments and exams. The Center was able to award 12 full Richard Acker Creation Care Scholarships to students attending the Institute and Creation Care Concentration. This was made possible by the Bradshaw-Knight Foundation as well as Karen Acker and the Richard Hoghton Acker Memorial Fund.
