Event Details

H.W. Brands comes back to West Michigan to discuss his next biography on America's path-breaking and Controversial 40th president, Ronald Reagan. Drawing from his past research on Franklin Roosevelt and his current work on Ronald Reagan, Brands examines what makes a president great - that is, what allows a president to reshape the course of American life. Roosevelt and Reagan espoused decidedly different policies, but their leadership styles reveal some striking similarities. The lessons of their presidencies hold value for all their sucessors - and for the citizens who choose those successors.

The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University

Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit.  We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
