Education programs overview
Education is the mission of The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. Our Education Department provides innovative and stimulating programs ranging from outreaches that take living history programs into local schools to national symposia that bring leading scholars from around the world into our community. For students and scholars alike, we endeavor to cultivate a passion for history and to stimulate reflection and discussion about important historical issues. Recent symposia have focused on the often paradoxical relationship between ideas of race and democracy and on America's transition to and responsibility as a superpower. Upcoming programs will examine the ever-changing character of international diplomacy and the way civil liberties and national security have been balanced in times of war. We are committed to reaching out into our community and to the world at large with history programming relevant to today in the hopes of building a better community through informed citizenship.
