Challenge your worldview. Commit to action.

Liberty Fellows are never satisfied with the status quo. They are eager and willing to do more, be more, and make a difference for South Carolina. Liberty Fellows are unafraid to examine, think about, and explore diverse values and beliefs with their peers. 

The beginning of the Fellowship experience immerses Fellows in five, multi-day seminars that explore readings by some of the world’s greatest thinkers — from classical Greeks to modern business tycoons. At seminars, Moderators facilitate candid and animated discourse. Fellows reflect on decisions, values, and hopes. It is through this process that Fellows are taught to think and create with an open mind, seeing our world for what it is, and what it could be. Fellows learn to identify how their unique skill set and network can bring progress to South Carolina and beyond. Fellows must participate 100% in all seminars. No late arrivals or early departures. 

During the seminars, each Fellow identifies and begins a personal leadership project reflecting his/her passions with support from Fellows and Mentors who share those interests. These projects mark the beginning of each Fellow’s commitment to action and their impact on the State of South Carolina and its residents. This action and impact is the defining characteristic of a Liberty Fellow.
