The Robert H. Smith Center for the Constitution

The Robert H. Smith Center for the Constitution was established by The Montpelier Foundation in 2002 with a goal of becoming the nation’s leading resource in high-quality constitutional education. The Center serves as a teaching academy, a place where professionals are immersed in an intellectual engagement with the theory and meaning of the American Constitution. Program activities take place in the Constitutional Village, where participants read, think, and discuss the ideas and innovations that underlie our nation’s great experiment in self-government.

Over 30,000 professionals from all 50 states and over 60 countries have participated in the Center’s programs—among these are teachers, law enforcement officers, and elected officials.
