Where Education & Politics Meet

The Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies & Citizenship

The Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center is a project of Hillsdale College. The purpose of the Kirby Center is to teach the Constitution, the debate that brought it to life, and the principles that give it meaning.

Through the study of original source documents from American history—and of older books that formed the education of America's founders—the Center will seek to inspire students, teachers, citizens, and policymakers to return the Constitution to its central place in the political life of the nation. We invite you to come and learn with us.

Visit the Kirby Center

The Kirby Center is located on Massachusetts Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Streets, NE. We are housed in a 16,000-square-foot building on Capitol Hill, just a few minutes’ walk from the Supreme Court, the Senate office buildings, and Union Station. Tours of the building are available by appointment during regular operating hours. To request a tour, please call (202) 600-7300.
