On Wednesday, March 9, IWP hosted its first official meeting of our new student-led chapter of The Alexander Hamilton Society. The non-partisan, not-for-profit, national organization seeks to identify, educate, and launch young men and women into foreign policy and national security careers imbued with the Hamiltonian perspective of strong and principled American leadership in global affairs.
Founded in March 2010 by Professor Aaron Friedberg of Princeton University, Daniel Blumenthal of the American Enterprise Institute, and Roy Katzovicz of Saddle Point Group LLC, The Alexander Hamilton Society was established to confront U.S. foreign, economic, and national security policy failures and to supply what American higher education lacks: vital, constructive programming that is critical to the intellectual and professional development of a new generation of American leaders.
National Security Affairs graduate student, Wendell Bryant, founded IWP’s chapter of The Alexander Hamilton Society in February. Since then, 13 students have joined, and more are expressing their interest every day. “The Alexander Hamilton Society provides IWP students the ability to have foreign policy discussions… or dialogue in a way that is not abrasive,” said Wendell.
IWP’s chapter of The Alexander Hamilton Society will meet every other Friday at 6 p.m. in Bently Hall’s back classroom for the remainder of this semester.
