Dr. Marvin Wachman (1917-2007) was a great advocate for educating young people. In a distinguished academic career, he served as president of both Temple University and Lincoln University and led the Foreign Policy Research Institute as president from 1983 to 1989. Throughout his life, he remained a passionate believer that “you never stop learning.”
Established in 1990, the Wachman Center is dedicated to improving international and civic literacy for high school teachers and high school students.
Taking advantage of the flood of new work unleashed by the centenary of the outbreak of the war, our goal is to introduce teachers to the most current scholarly discussions and also to help them prepare lesson plans to teach the upcoming centenary of American entry into the war in 2017.
