Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Program on Legislative Negotiation  
With this grant, American University will continue to build and increase the impact of the Program on Legislative Negotiation, a joint endeavor of the Washington College of Law and the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies. The program is designed to help overcome legislative gridlock and has four immediate objectives: (a) provide negotiation training for legislative members and staff; (b) train students and professionals through experiential learning programs; (c) facilitate and apply research on effective legislative negotiation; and (d) build a community of scholars, policymakers, and others who share these goals. Support for this program will enable American University to expand its reach as a hub for this effort.
