The Sutherland Dream is that we will promote principled patterns for governing and implement public policies that will be the envy of, and set a standard for, the nation.

From Utah’s laboratory of democracy, Sutherland Institute will sound the certain trumpet out to the country: the call of proven principles and effective policies. At the same time, we will provide a window in for all to see a Philadelphia vision in action.


Sutherland Institute is pursuing the path to “A New Birth of Freedom” for America through a free market economy, civil society and community-driven solutions.

Thought leadership, compelling research and strategic communication will enable Sutherland Institute to passionately promote and defend:

  • Empowering Principles
  • Elevated Dialogue
  • Enlightened Public Policy
  • Engaged Citizens
