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.

For three weeks, young American men and women joined students from a variety of developing countries and regions of social strife.

Hansen Summer Institute will host its fifth group of young leaders in July 2014 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES).

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.

Program elements will involve classroom instruction and hands-on training in the latest techniques of conflict resolution, mediation, and inter-cultural management.

Classroom training will complement local excursions to San Diego historical attractions and cultural events including a fourth of July parade, a Padres baseball game, and a harbor cruise. Hansen Summer Institute training aims to provide participants a “leadership toolbox” for resolving conflict and building a better future for their respective countries.


All participants of the program are provided with:

  • Accomodation and meals for the duration of the program
  • Local ground transportation
  • Program materials

Non-US participants are provided with:

  • International airfare to and from their home city
  • Health insurance for the duration of the program

. Students will need to check with their own University advisors and departments regarding academic credit for their participation.
