“The Ryan Center of Villanova University is honored to be affiliated with The Institute of World Politics — one of the premier graduate programs specializing in national security politics and grand strategy.  In our current political situation, we need some of our best graduates to pursue these critically important fields of study and practice.”

“IWP is thrilled to embark upon this partnership with Villanova University and the Ryan Center. IWP’s central mission of educating the next generation of leadership in intelligence, diplomacy, and national security is greatly strengthened by this endeavor, as is our mutual commitment to American values and their defense. Thanks to this, Villanova alumni are now able to take better advantage of the unique education offered by IWP.”
