Charles Koch Institute

The Charles Koch Institute is an educational organization focused on the importance of free societies and how they increase well-being for the overwhelming majority of people. Through the Institute’s professional education, research, and training programs, we work to prepare professionals for careers that improve well-being by advancing free societies.

For more than two decades, Charles G. Koch has given professionals and students the opportunity to turn their passion for liberty into careers through professional education programs. These opportunities have expanded to include the Koch Associate Program, Koch Internship Program, the Koch Summer Fellow Program, and Liberty@Work®. During 2014, approximately 350 people completed one of the programs and there are currently more than 2,500 alumni.

In conjunction with the professional education programs, the Institute has launched a new educational project focused on well-being. The Well-Being Initiative aims to encourage dialogue on the definition, drivers, and measures of well-being. Through research, events, and a broader dialogue, we hope to inspire people to improve their own communities. Educational program participants have the opportunity to contribute to this discussion on how best to improve well-being through reading, discussions, speakers, and more.
