The Center for the Study of the Presidency

Apr 19, 2009

The Center for the Study of the Presidency has four main goals:

  • Promote leadership in the Presidency and the Congress to generate innovative solutions to current national challenges
  • Preserve the historic memory of the Presidency by identifying the lessons from the successes and failures of such leadership
  • Draw on a wide range of talent to offer ways to better organize an increasingly compartmentalized Federal Government
  • Educate and inspire the next generation of America’s leaders to incorporate civility, inclusiveness, and character into their public and private lives and discourse.

With Foundation support, the Center developed a roadmap called “The Strengthening of America’s Future Initiative,” which addresses the nation’s greatest challenges and will be used to help guide and educate the President and Congress. Among the areas of focus are those fiscal threats that are fundamental to PGPF’s mission. The Center released its final project report in March 2010.
