In collaboration with the U.S. Army War College

One of the World Affairs Council’s most popular educator events since 1980, the National Security Briefing for Teachers is an annual day-long accredited program on national security issues and current global hotspots involving the U.S. military. Usually held in February, this workshop is developed in collaboration with the U.S. Army War College and the Eisenhower Series College Program.

During their visit to Pittsburgh, senior level military officers also conduct briefings for high school students and the community at large on a variety of foreign policy challenges facing the United States.

I have attended this workshop for many years and as always it was a wonderful, productive experience. The opportunity to interact with those on ‘the front lines’ provides excellent insights to the issues of the day.

It was a great chance for educators to talk directly to military leaders and see if our questions mirror their questions.
