The Eisenhower Institute empowers young leaders to tackle society’s most challenging public policy issues in real-time. Our experts lead students into communities across the U.S. and abroad to see the impact of policy decisions, talk to people who are affected, create innovative solutions and urge decision makers to take action.
Why Public Policy?
Public policy affects everything we do: our work, health, safety – even the air we breathe. In a democratic society, citizens have the right to examine the laws, policies, practices and decisions that affect them, and to be involved in how policy is made. This is where our work begins.
Travel with a Middle East business leader. Test pollution with an environmentalist. Examine social change with a veteran journalist. Debate national security with a terror suspect’s attorney. Or study climate change with a renowned energy expert. These are the professionals who lead our programs.
