Clinton, NY, December 9, 2011 — The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is pleased to announce the re-launch of its website offering an improved user experience, a wealth of knowledge and a new ability to participate via social media.
The AHI is also delighted to introduce its first new affiliate in Rochester, New York: The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization at Rochester. AHI Rochester will promote the study of a free society, where individuals have certain inalienable rights that cannot be taken away without contradicting the fundamental principles of life. “We draw our values from the ideas set forth by Adam Smith, Friedrich Hayek, Herbert Spencer, and other freedom loving individuals,” noted AHI Senior Fellow Michael Rizzo who heads the affiliate in Rochester.
AHI Rochester provides a forum for interested undergraduates to explore these questions through a variety of programming. Students participate in seminars where they read how the great thinkers of the past and present answer these questions. Professors and businessmen are invited to speak to help better understand the successes and failures in the world today. “By educating ourselves, we become better advocates for peace and freedom in our own lives and will become leaders in the never-ending debate of free markets versus planned economies,” said Rizzo.
Along with a direct link to the Rochester website, the most visible updates the AHI website can be seen in the site’s layout, with a new, cleaner, easier-to-navigate design template. Student initiatives, news and events, as well as bookstore are now displayed prominently across the top bar. Visitors to the new AHI website can also find us on Facebook directly from the website. “We’re delighted with the look of the brand new website and feel it offers visitors to the site improved ways to learn more about the AHI, and to participate in an exploration of the central concerns of American ideals and institutions,” said Charter Fellow Bob Paquette.
