New for the 2018-2019 academic year!

Eisenhower’s Decisions is a co-curricular learning experience in which participating students will carefully examine a number of critical decisions that Dwight D. Eisenhower made during his service as the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe and as the 34th President of the United States. This program is open to first-year and sophomore students who are deeply interested in learning about the difficult choices that Eisenhower made in times of war and peace. Participants will be expected to attend six lunch sessions during the Fall 2018 semester and a field trip to the Eisenhower Farm in Gettysburg. Students who are selected to participate in this high-impact educational experience are expected to prepare thoroughly for each session, including the engagement of assigned readings, films, and discussion questions. This program will prepare participating students for engagement in other Eisenhower Institute programs, including the EI Undergraduate Fellows Program as well as Strategy & Leadership in Transformational Times.

Eisenhower's Decisions is led by Gettysburg College Provost Christopher Zappe and is a new program for the Fall 2018 semester.
