The White House Decision Center
The White House Decision Center seeks to actively engage students in the learning process. A day of active student role-playing at the center highlights the program. During the White House Decision Center curriculum, students take on the roles of actual presidential advisors, recommending a course of action on a critical issue from the Truman Presidency.
A presidential briefing initiates the decision process and leads to group meetings where students are faced with a national or international dilemma.
Students working in teams, analyze documents and advise their president. Decisions are prepared and presented at a press conference where the policy is announced by the president and questioned by student reporters.
