The Eisenhower Institute Undergraduate Fellows Program offers a select group of Gettysburg College students the chance to develop their leadership skills and grow in their knowledge and understanding of public policy. Fellows act as liaisons for assigned Institute events at both office locations, and serve as hosts for campus visitors. Students engage fully in the planning and promotion of specific programs and projects. They are responsible for selecting, developing, and promoting a public policy theme with programming in both Gettysburg and Washington, D.C.
During the 2018-2019 academic year, the EI Undergraduate Fellows will study Common Security and Common Prosperity under the guidance of Dr. Brendan Cushing-Daniels, the Harold G. Evans Chair of Eisenhower Leadership Studies. The Fellows will hold a series of panel discussions and lectures throughout the year at Gettysburg College.
Opportunities experienced by past Undergraduate Fellows have included:
- Attending a luncheon with the 2017-2018 White House Fellows
- Meeting with members of the Normandy Group, who represent the Federal Aviation Administration Manager's Association
- Meeting with the former Communications Director of the U.S. Department of Transportation, who now works with a communications firm that represents coalitions of major U.S. airlines and seven airline labor unions
- Meeting with the Deputy Director of Congressional Affairs for Delta Airlines
