Our​ ​Partners

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security partners with diverse organizations on a variety of initiatives and projects, enriching our academic environment and promoting the free exchange of ideas.

One of the strongest qualities of DMGS is its faculty. The professors are brilliant practitioners in their respective fields with a true passion for what they do. The teaching is thorough, organized, and practical. Instead of reading dry textbook examples, you learn about the work and operations from the people who experienced them first hand. Unlike many other teaching institutions, DMGS never penalizes students for their opinions or forces them to accept one point of view. As long as your analysis is based on research and you can make logical inferences, you will be marked for your performance. The staff is extremely helpful and the school is an inclusive, welcoming, and stimulating environment. I cannot recommend it enough!
