Bridging the worlds of liberal arts and military education to the benefit of both
A five year project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Project on Civilian-Military Educational Cooperation facilitates joint projects between educational institutions preparing the next generation of leaders in both sectors. The aim is that members of each group should better understand the other, reducing the “civilian-military gap” that could be a problem for U.S. democracy and society. Read more about the issue in Douglas Stuart’s article for e-IR, “Civil-Military Relations in the U.S.: What Needs to be Done?”
Events so far have included joint seminars, exercises, curriculum development workshops, and social events.
Project Director: Professor Douglas T. Stuart, Dickinson College
