Leadership & the American Presidency


Established in 2016, Leadership and the American Presidency (LTAP) is a new program offered in conjunction with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. The program is designed to define and strengthen students’ leadership skills while teaching lessons from the American presidency. Through hands-on simulations, case studies and creative teaching methods, students examine some of the greatest leadership challenges in the history of our country: from George Washington and the Revolutionary War, to JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis, to Ronald Reagan urging Secretary Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” The LTAP program is also offered in the fall semester as part of the Capital Semester program at TFAS.
