About the Event

The Washington Center (TWC) has hosted the Inauguration Academic Seminar since 1985 – and it remains the only national academic program of its kind and size. In light of the intense issues that have erupted in the U.S. and globally since the COVID-19 pandemic, this seminar carries greater importance than ever for students, faculty and thought leaders internationally to participate.  

For the first time in TWC’s history, the Inauguration Academic Seminar will be held virtually – opening participation to students and faculty from around the world.

Held in the days leading up to the Inauguration of the President of the United States, the Inauguration 2021 Academic Seminar will be an unparalleled learning experience for students, faculty and professionals around the globe.

Presenters and panelists will tackle current, substantive issues, such as the politics of COVID-19 and public health, racism and the environment, and will dive into the U.S. democratic process, election reform and the politics of presidential transitions. Participants can expect to hear a wide variety of perspectives, explore complex issues and get a deeper understanding of the democratic process and political accountability.
