2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar
Registration to open in the coming days!
The 2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar, entitled Election 2020: U.S. Foreign Policy and America's Role in the World is a week-long summer institute open to all rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. This year’s seminar will seek to advance students’ understanding of several critical global challenges facing the winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Through nonpartisan guest lectures, interactive workshops, and a half-day crisis simulation, students will discuss issues central to our national interest and explore topics related to America's role in a changing world. Topics will include ongoing trade tensions, U.S. relations with the Middle East, and key national security challenges. Additionally, on the Seminar’s fifth-day, students will participate in a full-day field trip to Washington, D.C. that will offer students the exciting opportunity to meet with and hear from key U.S. diplomats, as well as officials from some of the world’s leading international organizations working on the frontlines to shape U.S. foreign policy both now and in the foreseeable future.
