Couldn’t help but to come back to the Nation’s Capital for another function!!
Gandhi once said: ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’ I think these seminars and internships have helped exemplify this statement, giving each and every one of us the necessary tools to be that change.”
The most exciting part of all these experiences I am having is the chance to hear from amazing speakers that most people just get to see on TV or read about
An academic seminar at The Washington Center is experiential learning at its finest. Gather with other students to explore, debate, and study every angle of the important topics the world is talking about. You wouldn’t get less than a in-depth education from site visits and tours, panel interviews, group discussions, lectures from distinguished speakers and sometimes fieldwork in a specific field.
During this upcoming seminar we learn more about the role international institutions and organizations play in the evolving global order and how modern weaponry and technological advancements affect the future of war and policy. Furthermore the role social networking and Web 2.0 technologies play in national security and the tools the government is using and developing to combat terrorism.
Top Secret: Challenges to National Security in a Global Society taking place from May 15-21, 2011 in Washington, DC. Through this seminar, offered in partnership with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), I will explore the inner workings of the U.S. national security landscape with nationally recognized journalists, politicians, political analysts and scholars as your guide. Participants will expand their knowledge of American and international politics through visits to: Executive Agencies, Think Tanks, Embassies, Media Organizations. Other escusions include, The National Counterterrorism Center, and Federal Bureau of Investigation
Under the direction of Faculty Director Rick “Ozzie” Nelson, Director of CSIS’s Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Program, we will be meeting and engaging with nationally and internationally recognized public officials and business professionals, as well as develop your sense of civic engagement and enhance your leadership skills.
Past speakers include: Deputy Assistant Attorney General Department of Justice, Director of the National Counter Terrorism Center, Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Directorate of Intelligence, FBI, Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Homeland Security Advisor to President Bush.
Looking forward to a great two weeks!!!!
