We are also grateful to have the input of our program alumni through our Alumni Advisory Council.

John Jay was both a committed Christian and a national leader. He served not only as President of the Continental Congress, Secretary for Foreign Affairs and Chief Justice of the United States; he served in the vestry of his local church and in national religious organizations. Jay did not see religion and politics as isolated: he used religious rhetoric in his political papers and employed political skills in religious arenas. Jay would, I believe, be very pleased to see a new John Jay Institute formed, to raise up a new generation of leaders, grounded in the Christian faith and our American legal and political system."
