THE INSTITUTE

Our campus on Routh Street is home for those who enjoy reading, thinking, exploring, and discussing timeless ideas that make us most fully human.

Join us on a common journey toward the discovery of truth, beauty, and all else that is good and noble.

Attend a thought provoking event, join a group, and find a class that moves you.
A new experience is in store for you at the Institute.

TESTIMONIALS

The kind of work the Dallas Institute is doing is crucial in today’s chaotic world.  If it didn’t exist, it would have to be invented right now to help us get through.

JIM LEHRER, Journalist

On behalf of all the teachers, faculty, and students who’ve benefited from your inspiration and influence, I salute you.

LAURA BUSH, First Lady

“I don’t know of any other city that has anything like the Dallas Institute, and every city should.”

JAMES ROUSE, Urban Planner
