In 2011, Mr. Prager co-founded Prager University with Allen Estrin. Through the sophisticated use of digital media, Prager University articulates the Judeo-Christian values on which America is founded: free speech, free enterprise, a moral foreign policy, and the rational case for God’s existence. The project serves as an effective counter to the Leftist indoctrination imposed by schools and universities. It does this via short, five-minute videos with clear, concise, fact-based presentations, featuring credible, and often well-known thinkers. These include Arthur Brooks, Walter Williams, George Will, Christina Hoff Sommers, Bret Stephens and many more.

In 2016 PragerU videos garnered over 225 million views.  60% of the PragerU audience is under 34 years old.
