The Hansen Leadership Institute 2020 in the USA formerly known as the Hansen Summer Institute for Leadership and International Cooperation — is an exciting international program funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation. Hansen Summer Institute (HSI) is named one of the top summer fellowships in the world. The fully-funded summer exchange program in the US will take place on July 2020 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES). The duration of an international summer school in 2020 is three weeks.

 

Hansen Leadership Institute training aims to provide students with a “leadership toolbox” for resolving conflict and building a better future for their respective countries and across the world. For three weeks each July, twenty-five young women and men from regions of conflict and the United States come together on the campus of the University of San Diego for this life-changing program. They join a family of Hansen Alumni who continues to remain in close contact through a variety of media and social networking sites.

A primary goal of the Hansen Leadership Institute is to create an international community of young scholars who will use their summer experience as a foundation for creating lasting friendships and acquiring common practical skills and training for the creation of a more peaceful future. The program includes classroom and hands-on instruction outside the classroom in the latest techniques of conflict resolution, mediation, and intercultural dialogue and management. Classroom training complements local excursions to San Diego historical attractions and cultural events, including but not limited to Balboa Park, Sea World, a Fourth of July parade, harbor cruise and a visit to the US-Mexico border.
