Ike’s Anvil gets its name from “Eisenhower,” which translates from German as “iron miner.” It is in the spirit of President Eisenhower’s moderate and bipartisan consensus-driven leadership that Ike’s Anvil acts as a forum for students to hammer out compromise, constructive politics, and policy solutions.
The Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College is excited to re-launch Ike’s Anvil in anticipation of new content this spring. While the original site served its purpose well, certain limitations inspired us to launch an updated platform to showcase student engagement with the most pressing challenges of our time. Moreover, we have expanded the remit of the Anvil to focus on issues of public policy and leadership development to better reflect the mission of the Eisenhower Institute and the content of our blog.
Our new content will focus on four areas:
Nation & World
Campus & Community
This semester, reflections from the Women and Leadership program will be the first to be featured on our relaunched site.
