OUR STORY

The Fielding Center for Presidential Leadership Study at Gettysburg College was established in 2015 under the leadership and guidance of one of the College’s most distinguished alumni, Fred Fielding. 

OUR PROGRAMS

We achieve our mission through a variety of programs:

  • Symposia and roundtable conversations on the modern American presidency

  • The Fielding Undergraduate Fellowship

“I first learned of the following Plato quote when I was a student at Gettysburg: the penalty for wise men who decline to participate in their governance is to be ruled by unwise men.”

- Fred Fielding '61, Chairman
