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.
