The next generation of foreign policy leaders will lean on social media and grassroots campaigns in addition to traditional diplomacy, says Christopher Hill, dean of the University of Denver's Korbel School of International Studies.  

Hill, who served as special envoy to Kosovo and ambassador to Iraq among other countries, spoke about changing views of the nation's role on the global stage, and how best to prepare future leaders.  He spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.

The conversation is part of National Public Radio's election season project A Nation Engaged, which this week focuses on America's role in the world.
