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. This program has provided a unique University-based leadership experience and program in international cooperation. Again in July 2017, American men and women will join students from a variety of developing countries and regions of social strife to learn from experts and one another about conflict resolution and social entrepreneurship. Hansen Summer Institute will host its seventh group of young leaders in July 2017 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES).
The 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. 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.
