Hansen Summer Institute 2017 in San Diego, California

A primary goal of the program focuses on creating an international community of young scholars who will use their summer experience as a foundation for creating lasting friendships and acquiring common practical understanding of a more peaceful future. Fellows receive hands-on training in team-building, public speaking, negotiation, mediation and working together to solve international problems. Moreover, they learn to listen actively and to look for common interests and building realistic bridges of cooperation. Classroom training complements local excursions to San Diego attractions such as Sea World, the Zoo,  a 4th of July Independence Day parade and a harbor cruise. Fellows meet and greet academic, political and business leaders to refine their own ideas and skills, while learning about the "American Way of Life." Students leave San Diego with a "leadership toolbox" they can apply appropriately to their future challenges and endeavors. Participants have come from every corner of the globe, made life-long friendships and shaped their futures in a more positive direction. Why not you?
