Leadership and the American Presidency Program

Posted by Admin On 4:05:00 PM
This new program endeavors to build on the past success of our civic education initiatives here at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Museum in Simi Valley, CA.

Based in Washington, D.C., this unique and immersive for-credit college course focuses on leadership development using the lens of the American Presidency. Students will live and learn in the nation's capital interning in an engaging setting aligned with their interests, while also participating in an accredited academic course. 

Leadership and the American Presidency will host approximately fifty deserving students and will be centered around three key concepts:
  • Real history: Students will explore American history through primary sources, the work of leading scholars, and visits to museums and other historic sites relevant to the instruction at hand.
  • Real leaders: Students will examine stories of leadership from influential and thoughtful figures in contemporary politics, business, media, and the non-profit world.
  • Real world: Students will be tasked to develop leadership challenges through case studies, scenarios, and authentic real world situations.
The deadline for the summer semester is March 16th, 2016, but they will continue to accept applications for the fall semester until June 1. Visit www.ReaganFoundation.org/Leadership to learn more about the program and begin an online application. If you have any questions about our program please reach out to the Program Manager, Meredith Stasa at mstasa@reaganfoundation.org who would be happy to provide you with more information or even schedule a school visit.
