About the Teach-In


At the University of Oklahoma, we believe that providing students with the tools to study the events that shaped America’s heritage will help ensure our nation’s bright future.

Out of that belief came the Teach-In, a single-day lecture series encompassing a specific period or idea in world history, and since its inception in 2012, it has been a signature event for the university and the Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage.

Over these last several years, thousands have poured into OU's Catlett Music Center to hear from the nation's leading historians on topics such as the American founding, the Great Depression, the Civil War, the First World War, and the Constitution. 

These lectures can be viewed in their entirety by clicking on the tab "Past Teach-Ins," on the IACH's digital library,, or on the IACH's YouTube channel.
