Arizona State University announced that it has established the McCain Institute for International Leadership. The new institute is initially supported by a $9 million gift from the McCain Institute Foundation, a charitable trust funded by Arizona Sen. John McCain. ASU will build the nonpartisan and nonprofit education and research center, based in Washington, D.C., and with a physical presence in Tempe. Full establishment of the Institute is planned for early 2013.

The McCain Institute for International Leadership will focus on promoting character-driven leadership, as well as research and decision-making in the areas of humanitarian work, human rights and national security. It also will seek to promote rigorous debate, in the best American tradition of open inquiry, spirited discussion and practical action.
