The Hauenstein Center is proud to announce our second biennial Character and the Presidency event, in partnership with The Peter F. Secchia Family, the Meijer Foundation, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum.

The event featured David Brooks, distinguished political commentator and New York Times columnist, alongside bestselling presidential historian Ronald C. White, for a conversation about the past, present, and future of the American presidency. No subject could be more timely and important for the promotion of ethical, effective leadership in the twenty-first century. Ambassador Peter Secchia addressed why he felt the need to initiate a hard-hitting series on character in the presidency.
