Washington, D.C.—The International Churchill Society (ICS) and the George Washington University (GWU) are pleased to announce that the National Churchill Library and Center has been renamed the National Churchill Leadership Center (NCLC) effective immediately. The official announcement took place during this year’s international conference. NCLC Director Justin Reash and the GWU Dean of Libraries Geneva Henry explained the reasons.

Reash said, “Winston Churchill’s leadership continues to provide inspiration and instruction to leaders today in every field around the globe. This name change reflects the Center’s focus on using Churchill’s example as a lens to view leadership studies in all areas. Since the NCLC is housed in GWU’s Gelman Library, we interact with thousands of students and visitors each year and serve as a convenient platform for influential leaders to engage with our broad and diverse audience.”

ICS President Randolph Churchill said, “Speaking for the entire Churchill family, we are delighted with renaming the Center to focus on leadership, which is synonymous with Churchill and his fight for liberty and the freedoms we cherish today. The National Churchill Leadership Center will bring together leaders from all walks of life to learn from his legacy and develop their own skills and will inspire others to follow.”
