Posted on 4/24/2019 2:11:38 PM

The IUP community can get the inside story on today’s most pressing national security issues directly from a group of senior military officers at a panel discussion, free and open to the public, at 6:00–7:15 p.m., Thursday, April 25, located in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, room 126.

The panelists are part of the Eisenhower National Security Series, which is the US Army War College’s communication and outreach program designed to encourage dialogue on national security and other public policy issues between its students and the public. The program focuses its efforts on students and faculty at academic institutions, professional organizations, civic groups, business organizations, and local media. The panelists are students at the US Army War College, located in Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, which represents the highest level of education offered by the military services. It is designed to equip carefully selected senior officers and civilians with the competencies required of strategic leaders of the United States Armed Forces.

The panelists have conducted research on a range of topics including: the future of lethal autonomous weapon systems, artificial intelligence and war, and hybrid warfare and NATO.

Though the members will address government policies, the views they express are their own, based on personal experience, research, academic study, and reflection. Panel members are prepared and eager to discuss national public policy and current social issues and their impact on the United States Armed Forces.

The presentation by the Eisenhower Fellows is sponsored by the Political Science Department.
