Meet David Eisenhower
Grandson of the nation’s 34th president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and son-in-law of the nation’s 37th president, Richard Nixon.
David Eisenhower teaches Communication and the Presidency, which examines the impact of the “Bully Pulpit” on recent and contemporary national politics. As the Director of the Institute for Public Service at the Annenberg School, he oversees COMPS (Communication in Public Service) undergraduate students’ course work and internships. The Institute also sponsors events and symposia, and brings teaching fellows to the Annenberg School.
Additionally, every four years Eisenhower teaches the “Conventions” class, whereby a group of undergraduate students attend the Democratic and Republican national political conventions, getting a first-hand and close-up look at the selection of presidential candidates.
