Upton Program & Forum


The Miller Upton Program seeks to deepen our students’ understanding of the wealth and wellbeing of nations through intimate interactions with preeminent thinkers.


What drives human progress?
How can compassionate capitalism pave the way to a prosperous and equal world?
How can I make a difference and help reduce global poverty, promote human development, and solve energy issues?

Engage and learn.

Inquire with the Miller Upton Scholar in an intimate classroom setting

The Miller Upton Scholar is a public intellectual whose distinguished work and influential ideas become the driving force of the annual forum. With many leading scholars also at the forum, the conversation is enriched even further.



Experience a powerful fusion of theory and practice

Students grasp the theories in the classroom, apply them in their senior theses, and connect with prominent scholars in the field to put their liberal arts into practice.





Hear the real deal: from students themselves

The forum has given students lots of experiences to divulge and many tales to tell. Learn more about them here.
