Chess 444x718The Strategic Fellows Program at The Institute of World Politics (a graduate school of national security and international affairs in Washington, D.C.) is an intensive two-week program focused on providing a guided introduction to the development of national security, policy and leadership techniques at the strategic tactical and operational level.  Class participants include:

  • U.S. and Allied company, field grade, and warrant officers
  • U.S. and Allied senior non-commissioned officers
  • U.S. Government Agencies and Departmental representatives
  • NATO and Allied diplomatic and government representatives

Led by expert scholar-practitioners from the Institute, participants will explore key strategic issues through a combination of graduate-level lectures and experiential activities in the national capital region. The course emphasizes critical thinking, effective oral and written communication, and enhanced appreciation for United States geostrategic priorities.

Participants will learn inter-agency functions so that critical decision making can be more collaborative.
