AEI Executive Councils: The Executive Council program began in 2013 on 25 undergraduate campuses and has since grown to over 300 student leaders on more than 80 campuses across the country. These groups of up to six students per school form the core of AEI’s outreach to undergraduates. Beyond graduation, these individuals have gone on to the nation’s top graduate schools and to work on Capitol Hill, for top consulting and financial firms, for presidential campaigns, for leading non-profits, and in other fields.
