The Leadership and Governance Program is a forum for exploring democracy and promoting leadership in public service, while educating about our representative democracy. Through education, research, and student initiatives, the Baker Center works to promote a participatory democracy, public service, the principles of civility, academic undergraduate research, and leadership. These efforts are led by our staff and faculty fellows. Programs within this focus area include:
– Student Programs including Baker Ambassadors, Baker Scholars, the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center Grand Policy Challenge, and the Baker Center Washington Program.
– Student Groups including the Roosevelt Institute, Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature, Mock Trial, and the Forum on Science Ethics and Policy.
