Wilmington, Del. — The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), a national educational organization headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, recently presented Edwin J. Feulner Jr., ISI alumni, current ISI trustee and president of The Heritage Foundation, with its highest award: The Charles H. Hoeflich Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Feulner received the prestigious award in front of a crowd of over three hundred people at ISI’s Fourth Annual Dinner for Western Civilization at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, Delaware, on April 30, 2009.

ISI’s lifetime achievement award is named after Charles H. Hoeflich, president emeritus of the Univest Corporation and a founding member of ISI’s board of trustees. Mr. Hoeflich has served as secretary, treasurer, and chairman of ISI’s board and is still an active member today. For over fifty-five years, he has labored as a moral, financial, and practical guiding light to ISI and its leadership.

The Charles H. Hoeflich Lifetime Achievement Award is reserved only for those who have made truly exceptional contributions to ISI’s mission and is not presented every year. Since 1953, there have been only six recipients of ISI’s Lifetime Achievement Award including William F. Buckley, Jr., M. Stanton Evans, and philosopher Gerhart Niemeyer. ISI now adds to that roster Edwin J. Feulner Jr., a man whose contributions to American conservatism, both intellectual and practical, are legendary.

Dr. Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation, the nation’s leading conservative public policy organization. An ISI member as an undergraduate and graduate student, he received his B.S. at Regis University, his MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and his Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Dr. Feulner also studied at Georgetown University and the London School of Economics, where he was an ISI Richard M. Weaver Fellow. He has served on ISI’s board of trustees since 1980 and was chairman during ISI’s 50th Anniversary Campaign from 2003 to 2006.

Dr. Feulner has been appointed to several government commissions at the federal level. He was a consultant for domestic policy to President Reagan, and he was on the Secretary of State’s UNESCO Review Observation Panel. In 1982, he was given the rank of ambassador, delivering the final address from a United States representative to the United Nations second special session on disarmament. He is the author of seven books and a contributor to ten other books and numerous journals, reviews, and magazines.

Founded in 1953, ISI works “to educate for liberty” — to help further in successive generations of college students an appreciation of the economic, political, and moral principles that sustain a free and humane society.
