The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Inc., or (ISI), is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1953 as the Intercollegiate Society of Individualists. Its members, over 50,000 college students and faculty across the United States, take advantage of programs designed to supplement a collegiate education and to provide access to resources that will help one achieve an education based primarily on the works of influential men and women in the European and Christian traditions. The group is known for having distinctly American Conservative views. - Source: Wikipedia

Going to college doesn't make you a better citizen. That's the main finding from the latest edition of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute's (ISI) Civics Literacy Report. The study, which will be released Tuesday, concludes that American universities have been doing an inadequate job when it comes to preparing students for their civic responsibilities. The report found that the politically active were more likely to rely on self-education and frequently attended religious services.
