Presidential Leadership Scholars Launch


September 8, 2014

President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton announced the launch of the Presidential Leadership Scholars program, a partnership between the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson. These institutions have joined to create a program that provides motivated leaders an opportunity to study presidential decisions, and learn from key administration officials, practitioners, and leading academics.

The program’s purpose is to help participants foster the skills they’ll need to address both the challenges and opportunities presented in the 21st century. The program will study the various approaches to leadership so participants are able to gain a better understanding of different leadership philosophies, styles, and practices. Participants will use the tools developed throughout their course of study and apply them to an issue or challenge that is of particular relevance to his/her professional and civic pursuits.

The components of the program will be officially unveiled and Presidents Bush and Clinton will participate in a moderated conversation on the leadership program during a launch event at the Newseum in Washington, DC.
