David M. Abshire Civic Leadership Trip

The David M. Abshire Civic Leadership trip is an intensive week-long experiential course of study in Washington D.C. with an emphasis on national leadership, ethics, entrepreneurship and service.

Up to twelve rising seniors are selected for the honor each year.

These students travel to the nation's capital in June where they meet a variety of leaders and participate in a myriad of activities while also enjoying tours of government buildings and national landmarks. The students also have the opportunity to participate in leadership and entrepreneurship seminars with government officials, the Institute for Public Trust, and Baylor alumni in the area. The program was created in partnership with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and the late Dr. Abshire ’44, who served as president and CEO of that organization.
