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. Five Hansen Summer Institutes took place in San Diego, California in July 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2014. The Institute provides a unique University-based leadership experience and program in international cooperation. For three weeks, young American men and women joined students from a variety of developing countries and regions of social strife. Between then and now, Hansen alumni have remained in contact via a variety of social networking sites and projects funded by the Hansen Foundation. We are happy to announce the Hansen Summer Institute will host its sixth group of young leaders in July 2015 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES).
