Hiram College

The Garfield Center for Public Leadership

The Garfield Center for Public Leadership prepares students to assume the responsibilities of public leadership by developing expertise in matters of public policy, foreign and domestic, grounded in Hiram’s traditional liberal arts education.


    The Challenges of Negotiation and Implementation

    The seminar will explore the prospects, opportunities,
    and obstacles for an agreement from the perspective of two former
    U.S. government officials who have engaged in similar negotiations and agreement
    implementation in the past.

Working through the seminar series and other events, the Institute strives to train the next generation of public servants and educate the community at large about relevant political issues.

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