National Review Institute's mission is to advance conservative principles, complement the mission of the National Review magazine, and support National Review's best talent. NRI supports conservative writers and their ideas on how to guard and build on our country's strengths, core principles, and freedoms, how to revitalize and add vigor and practical application to our conservative convictions, and how to better influence our culture while opposing its determined foes. The Institute's educational programs bring together leaders in business, philanthropy, media, and policy to help strengthen the broader conservative movement, while also educating emerging leaders and our fellow citizens on the principles of a free society. Our partnership programs send NR's best talent across the country, thereby amplifying and expanding the reach of the National Review mission.
