Hiram College

The Garfield Institute

In the spirit of James A. Garfield, the Garfield Institute helps both the political and apolitical explore public service in a process replete with opportunities on and off campus.

The Institute is split into two complimentary branches to fulfill this goal.

The Garfield Center for Public Leadership focuses on preparing students to assume public leadership roles, to positively affect their community and themselves.

The Garfield Center for the Study of the American Presidency serves to educate students on the institution of the presidency itself, as well as the individuals who have held the office.
