Funded by an endowment named for John A. Hauser, a trustee and friend of Gettysburg College and the second president of the Musselman Company, this program sponsors extended campus visits by leaders in government and public policy.
These residencies typically involve public lectures, classroom presentations, meetings with individual students, student organizations, and faculty, workshops, receptions, and other activities. Each Hauser leader-in-residence must address, in part, the ethical implications of their topic(s) or professional role. Recently, Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows have been sponsored through this program. This program parallels the Hauser executive-in-residence program based in the Department of Management.
