John enjoys working with students and helping prepare them to be the agents of change that the world needs.

Carlin teaches a masters level leadership seminar course and an undergraduate course in practical politics. Both courses focus on the practical rather than theoretical aspects of leadership.

“I'm thrilled to be a part of this program and particularly at a time with so much need for leadership and opportunities to succeed.” 




“Citizens must understand the possibilities and limitations of leadership. We must know how we can strengthen and support good leaders; and we must be able to see through the leaders who are exploiting us, playing on our hatred and prejudice, or taking us down dangerous paths.” -John W Gardner
