The Hansen Summer Institute on Leadership and International Cooperation is an exciting international program funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation. It takes place at the University of San Diego Schools of Leadership and Education Sciences.
The program focuses on creating an international community of young scholars who will acquire common practical understanding of a more peaceful future. It aims to provide participants a “leadership toolbox” for resolving conflict and building a better future for their respective countries.
Program elements will involve classroom instruction and hands-on training in the latest techniques of conflict resolution, mediation, and inter-cultural management. Besides, it would also involve local excursions to San Diego historical attractions and cultural events including a fourth of July parade, a Padres baseball game, and a harbor cruise.
