Our Mission


The Center for Public Choice and Market Process advances the understanding of the economic, political, and moral foundations of a free market economy. The Center supports the growth and development of teaching and research at the College of Charleston School of Business while engaging students and the greater Charleston business community.


Our vision is for free speech, open inquiry, and intellectual diversity to flourish on the College of Charleston campus; for all College of Charleston students to have an opportunity to study and explore the ideas of an economically and politically free society; and create a growing community of fellows to research and teach the principles and practice of freedom.


To achieve our mission, the Center sponsors a number of programs:

Free Market Speaker Series

Student Development - Market Process Scholars

Faculty Research
