Nelson Institute

Drake University is dedicated to preparing future leaders of tomorrow — including those who, one-day, will be responsible for guiding and crafting international policies.

The Rolland and Mary Nelson Institute provides in-depth international knowledge and experiences to Drake students and faculty. The institute offers a solid forum delivering a balance of extensive research and hands-on exercises. Participants learn how to work within a team and build relationships with intercultural entities to find common ground. Participants also gain a better understanding and perspective of the steps involved in building bridges and working towards the common good of humanity on a global scale.
