Making a Leader
Thomas More, Abraham Lincoln, Aristotle, Michelangelo, William Shakespeare, and Thomas Edison all made a difference in their world. Leadership for America is for high school students who want to make a difference in ours.
Leadership for America is a week-long seminar in which students discuss the important questions that need to be addressed by the future leaders of society as well as the underlying principles of leadership based on the natural law and democratic ideals.
The 2016 Summer Seminar: Freedom & The Constitution
At the core of some of the most contentious issues discussed in the United States today is the question, “What does it mean to be free?” What does the right to free speech entail? How can one freely exercise religion in a pluralistic society? How does freedom extend into the family, marriage, and privacy? This seminar will help you better understand this central tenet of American society through examining the most important document in American government for protecting freedom, the Constitution.
The seminar will be taught by Professor Dwight Duncan, Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Law. Professor Duncan has written articles on legal, moral, and religious issues. He has argued several cases before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and the Appeals Court and has written briefs for the U.S. Supreme Court.
In addition to the classes, some time each day will be dedicated to reviewing the assigned readings in preparation for class. There will be time in the afternoons for sports and in the evenings for interactive activities including discussions, a talent show, and debates. The daily schedule will also include Mass and times of prayer.
