National Security Lecture Series at DMGS

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School Lecture Series is specifically designed to bring together speakers with divergent opinions on national security with the goal of enabling the public to engage in robust and informed discussions. It has hosted some of the most distinguished and influential leaders, thinkers, and practitioners of the national security community. These members of the national security community have provided our students, faculty, and guests with first-rate analysis of some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Daniel Morgan Graduate School will continue to host speakers who can help prepare the next generation of leaders, scholars and, practitioners to develop actionable solutions to global and domestic security challenges.


Last Friday, we were pleased to welcome Dr. Carter Malkasian to our campus to discuss the U.S. military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan and their consequences exploring the theme of illusory victory. Dr. Malkasian currently serves as Special Assistant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He has extensive experience working in conflict zones including two years spent as a State Department Political Officer in Afghanistan and time spent as a civilian advisor with the U.S. Marines in Iraq in 2004 and 2006. Visitors to our campus were given the chance to interact with Malkasian during his presentation and during the catered lunch afterwards.
