Sen. John McCain will be influencing future international leaders at Arizona State University.

The Arizona Republic ( reports the 2008 Republican presidential nominee is establishing the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The McCain Institute, to open in December, will be based in Washington, D.C., but also have a presence at the school's Tempe campus.

McCain is funding the institute with $9 million leftover from his presidential campaign.

McCain says he wants to have a program that will draw American and foreign students. He says the program will stress character-driven leadership and be a place for debate on foreign affairs.

ASU President Michael Crow said in a statement the McCain Institute will fit in perfectly with the school's mission to have a positive impact on the larger community.
