Name: Sloane Frost
School: Cornell University & University of Chicago
Sloane Frost graduated from Cornell University in 2008 with a degree in Policy Analysis & Management and concentration in Health Policy. While studying the economics and history of health policy in this country, Sloane became interested in the principles of liberty and individual responsibility that seem to be missing from modern policy initiatives. After serving with City Year, an AmeriCorps program, Sloane saw first hand the negative consequences of an intrusive government public education system. She returned to academia to earn a Masters in Public Policy and certificate in Health Administration and Policy at the University of Chicago in June 2011.
Various experiences in the university setting quickly taught Sloane that her fellow students are also deprived of many freedoms on campus, and she became dedicated to the student fight for liberty. In 2007, Sloane co-founded Students For Liberty and now serves as the Chairwoman of the SFL Board of Directors.
Sloane is currently a research analyst with Mathematica Policy Research in Princeton, NJ.
Favorite Figures in Liberty: Ayn Rand, Neal Boortz, Thomas Sowell, and Milton & Rose Friedman
On Students For Liberty: “The idea for a liberty-oriented conference arose from a discussion between myself and Alexander where we realized the pervasive need for a student-driven, national network to support the student movement.Students For Liberty has therefore been very important to me since its inception, and I am excited to continue working for the cause.A network of students driven to improve academic freedom, activism, and understanding of liberty is essential to a complete education and its environment.With the growth of this organization, more students will hopefully find a way to freely discuss and explore their opinions in academic institutions.”
