In his 2022 State of the State address, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee said he plans to create a civics institute at the University of Tennessee to educate students on American civics and instill patriotism. In addition to the institute, Lee announced a formalized partnership with Hillsdale College to bring the Christian school’s philosophy on civics education to Tennessee. “Informed patriotism should stretch beyond K-12 and into higher education,” Lee said.
