Administrative History

Named for David M. Kennedy, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and Ambassador-at-Large, the Kennedy Center prepares students to make contributions in global affairs with degrees in International Relations and Area Studies, Study Abroad opportunities, research programs, and lectures by scholars and diplomats. The objective is to mold the brightest students today who will serve the people and nations of the world tomorrow-—a commitment that extends beyond classroom theory to incorporate practical experience in an international setting. Kennedy Center graduates have a reputation around the world for their academic excellence, international experience, and moral character. The center's international and area studies offers five major and nineteen minor degree programs. The campus attracts extraordinary diplomats, scholars, and talented individuals from business, politics, finance, public service, and education who teach and lecture at the International Forum Series. The center also offers conferences and seminars to stimulate intellectual debate and to prepare students for evolving career opportunities in our global community.
