TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Sen. John McCain will be influencing future international leaders at Arizona State University.

The Arizona Republic reports the 2008 Republican presidential nominee is establishing the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The McCain Institute, to open in December, will be based in Washington, D.C., but also have a presence at the school’s Tempe campus.

McCain is funding the institute with $9 million leftover from his presidential campaign.

McCain says he wants to have a program that will draw American and foreign students. He says the program will stress character-driven leadership and be a place for debate on foreign affairs.

ASU President Michael Crow said in a statement the McCain Institute will fit in perfectly with the school’s mission to have a positive impact on the larger community.

  1. “McCain says he wants to have a program that will draw American and foreign students. He says the program will stress character-driven leadership and be a place for debate on foreign affairs.”

    What hypocrisy as he wants to build a “dang fence” and the state of Arizona is not welcoming to people but instead is driving people out of the state with the mean-spirited immigration laws being put in place. What informed foreign student would want to step foot in Arizona?

  2. 23,000 military families are being denied medical treatment for autism. Tell the Senate Armed Service Committee to pass the Caring for Military Kids with Autism Act today.

    As our service members pledge to leave no fallen soldier behind, it is our responsibility to leave no military child behind.
