"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to provide education to this extraordinarily promising community of young leaders, and to offer them new possibilities and opportunities to contribute to our national life."
-Dr. John Lenczowski, Founder and President of IWP
In the summer of 2013, The Institute of World of World Politics (IWP) partnered with the Institute for Responsible Citizenship (IRC) to offer IRC students the Lynde and Harry Bradley Seminar on Economic and Constitutional Principles.
The students taking the course are participants in the Institute for Responsible Citizenship's program which prepares high-achieving African American men for successful careers in various fields and involves seminars, internships, and intensive mentoring. Among IRC's alumni are a Rhodes Scholar, several Rhodes finalists, Truman Scholars, a Luce Scholar, a Fulbright Scholar, and the recipients of many other honors and awards. They also have the opportunity to meet with key government and private sector leaders including Congressman and civil rights icon, John Lewis, and intern full time to gain hands on experience in Washington, D.C.
The students can take the seminar for college credit, as the seminar counts for IWP Class 501. The class was first taught by Dr. William B. Allen who passed the course on to one of his former students, Mr. Robert Bland. Mr. Bland is an affiliated faculty member with IWP and also an alumnus of the IRC.
