Student Programs

The George C. Marshall International Center’s Student Programs focus on crucial decisions made by Marshall during World War II and in the post-war era. Students work with primary documents, formulate solutions to problems outlined in the documents, and compare their approaches to those of Marshall. The GCMIC promotes international cooperation in the spirit of the Marshall Plan through educational exchanges at the high school, university, and young professional level..

Educational Presentations to Students

The Center offers educational presentations about George C. Marshall that are shaped to energize and excite students, while satisfying academic goals. Through a dynamic and interactive Powerpoint presentation enhanced with historic and contemporary imagery, students learn about Marshall’s remarkable contributions to 20th-century history while understanding more about his personal life in Leesburg, Virginia.

Presentations may be modified to accommodate secondary or elementary school students and can be given onsite in classrooms or auditorium settings. They serve as an excellent precursor to a field trip to George C. Marshall’s Dodona Manor, but can also stand alone as a discrete learning experience for students.

To schedule an educational presentation about George C. Marshall and Dodona Manor, contact our Docent Director Tom Bowers at (703) 777-1301 or, or email us at  or complete the Student Group Tour Form.
