Fellows from the U.S. Army War College’s Eisenhower Series College Program will visit IUP February 16–17, 2016.

All are invited to attend the National Security Forum, which team members from the Eisenhower Series College Program will hold from 6:30–8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16, in room 225 of the Humanities and Social Sciences building. Join them in the same room from 4:30–5:30 p.m. for pizza before the forum.

Mac Fiddner of the Political Science Department works to bring the Eisenhower Series College Program team members to IUP each spring. The team members, all senior military officers and civilian national security professionals, participate in constructive, candid exchanges on current national security and military issues. They address current government policies, although they are not bound to champion those policies. They are encouraged and expected to share personal views based on their own experiences, research, and reflection.

Team members will focus on national public policy issues such as defense transformation, stability operations, peacekeeping, future threats, information warfare, international drug trafficking, international terrorism, nuclear nonproliferation, weapons of mass destruction, civil-military relations, and numerous other issues associated with national security. The members are also prepared to discuss current social issues and their impact on both national security and America’s Armed Forces.
