Domestic Excellence

Presidential Leadership Scholars

Developing a new generation of leaders who are focused on solving society's most challenging issues.

The presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson bring together leaders from across the non-profit, military, public, and private sector fields to learn first-hand from four consequential presidencies.


This first-of-its-kind program, in partnership with other presidential centers, teaches leadership through the lens of presidential experiences.

The bipartisan program produces bold and principled leaders who are committed to solving our greatest challenges, both domestically and across the world.
