Reactivating a Legacy of Service


The Presidio Institute occupies historic Fort Winfield Scott in the 1,500 acre Presidio in San Francisco, a former military base adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge. Drawing on the site's legacy of military service, retreat-like environment, and location at the heart of the nation's leading region for technological innovation, the setting itself provides a symbolically rich environment for renewal, learning, and collaboration.

Our home is a nexus for social change – a place together, learn, and exchange ideas. It is a place where leaders from across the nation can find inspiration, learn new skills, renew their courage, and recharge their ambition.

​The Fort Scott history, symbolism, and beauty set the stage for an experience of deep transformation.
