Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty

The Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty is an initiative of HBU’s School of Humanities, and is made possible through a generous gift by University founding father, Dr. Stewart Morris, Sr. The Center is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of American Founding principles, limited government and liberty. The organization is staffed by a select group of professors from the fields of Government, History and Law who share a commitment to the values on which our nation was founded.

The Center offers unique opportunities and scholarships for HBU students, public outreach to the greater Houston area, and educational events for the Houston business and legal community. The Center also plans to evolve into an active public policy think-tank. While Houston is now the fourth largest city in America, it lacks an influential organization to help shape public policy, and the Center can help fill that void.

The Center is an integral part of the future of the HBU campus as well. We plan to build a replica of Independence Hall that will be used for classes, community events and conferences. This building will provide an eye-catching addition to the campus while also sending a message that HBU honors the wisdom of our nation’s Founding Fathers.
